The increasing demand for a quality sleep
stimulates people to look for quality beddings for themselves, such as good
comforters or sheets. Today we are going to introduce to you several tips for
choosing high-quality and suitable Silk Comforters.
What Is Silk Comforters?
Silk comforter refers to those comforters
that are made of 100% silk floss, it
normally comes into 2 types, one is with silk case/cove, the other is cotton
Silk Shell or Cotton Shell?
When it comes to silk comforters you may
come across those terms: silk comforter
with silk shell or silk comforter
with cotton shell. What are those and which is better?
In fact, both of them are filled with 100%
silk. The biggest difference lies in the case/cover of them.
The silk comforter with silk shell, or
called silk-covered comforter is the
one with silk case covered on the silk floss, in comparison, the outer shell of
silk comforter with cotton shell, also called cotton-covered comforter, is made of cotton.
You can enjoy silk benefits from both of
them. You can choose cotton-covered silk
comforter if price is a big consideration you have to take or you do not
want the comforter move around a lot on your bed. Silk-covered silk comforter would be the best choice if you would
like to experience a completely silky dream and price is not a problem to you.
Handmade or Machine?
would definitely recommend handmade silk comforter for the following reasons.
Handmade silk comforter are filled using
long fiber Silk. The silk
2 Layered in a grid pattern.
2 Tacked, not boxed stitched.
2 No lumps caused by silk filling clumping up.
silk comforters are filled with short fibers that are:
2 Stuffed, not layered into a
2 Box stitched, which damages
the silk fiber and creates cold spots throughout the comforter, undermining a
silk comforter’s heat regulating ability.
Do I Need A Cover For My Silk
Yes, absolutely. You should always protect
your comforter with a cover to prevent dust or damage caused by unexpected
What’s The Best Silk Type of Silk
100% silk is always your first
choice! Especially for the silk floss. Only the cocoons of silkworm can
be unraveled to make spindles of single-strand silk threads, forming
long-stranded silk fiber. Our products, unless stated otherwise on the product
page, are made of 100% pure and natural long fiber silk cultivated
from the best silk farms in China.
Summer Weight Silk Comforter Or All
Firstly, the difference between the summer
comforter and all season one lies in weight and thickness. Summer comforter is
lighter and thinner than all season one, suitable for summer days. All season
comforter is more suitable for fall and winter.
When it comes to choosing suitable silk
comforters, the most important factor should be considered is the usual
temperature in your bedroom.
If your bedroom is not A/C’d then obviously
this temperature could fluctuate with season, so it’s best if you choose the
season in which you would like to sleep in the silk comforter first. There is a
general guideline, however: For a bedroom at 68F/20C, a queen size comforter weighing
approximately 0.9-1kg/2lb should best suit your needs. With every 3C/6F degree
decrease, add 0.3-0.5kg/0.6-0.9lb to the weight of the comforter. So if you are
expecting to sleep in a bedroom with a temperature of 14C/57F in the
fall/winter season, the comforter should weigh approximately 1.5-2kg/3-4lb. Of
course, this is just a rough estimate and only used as a reference.
