How do you measure whether you’ve got high quality silk?
However, if you want to get the measurement of silky goodness, you had better consider other factors like momme weight, for the thread count with silk is quite different from cotton or linen bedding.
Momme weight (mm) is used to measure silk fabrics quality. The standard for measuring momme weight is by using a piece of fabric that is 100 yards long and 45 inches wide. For instance, our silk is 22 momme. In other words, 100 yards of our silk weighs 22 pounds.
Here at PandaSilk.com, we provide silk sheets with 19, 22, 25 & 30 momme weight.
The fabric with high thread count is not necessarily what you would want to choose, for silk threads are very fine by nature. Conversely, if you want to get a high quality of silk, you can choose the one with a lower thread count of heavier, stronger & more robust threads.
