To improve sleep quality, more and more people begin seeking for silk comforters. This guide will tell you what to consider when choosing silk comforters.
1. Silk Shell or Cotton Shell
Silk comforter, made of 100% silk floss, is usually divided into two types, one is with silk shell and the other is a cotton shell.
|Silk Comforter with Silk Shell||Silk Comforter with Cotton Shell|
|Fillings||Filled with 100% Silk|
|Pros & Cons|
The comforter shell is a basic method to maintain the integrity of silk fillings, please don’t consider the shell as a duvet cover, no matter it’s silk shell or cotton shell, always use a separate duvet cover to contain silk comforter, either a cotton duvet cover or a silk duvet cover which you can buy from us. If you have stained your duvet cover, simply take the duvet cover off and wash the duvet cover. So, here at pandasilk.com, we only sell silk comforters with cotton shell, which cost much less that those with silk shell.
2. Silk Filling Types
There are many different types of silk fibers, can be divided into 2 groups.
- Mulberry silk fibers, which are extracted from silkworm cocoons.
- Non-mulberry silk fibers, including Eri silk, Tasar silk & Muga silk.
What we pandasilk.com offered is also your best choice: 100% long-stranded mulberry silk fiber fillings.
3. Weight of Silk Fillings
There are many so-called “summer silk comforter” or “winter silk comforter” or “all season silk comforter”. At pandasilk.com, let’s forget those confusing names, the key of choosing silk filling weight is the temperature of your bedroom:
