A few of the benefits of silk.
Silk is one of nature’s strongest fibres, with a tensile strength comparable to steel. As such, silk is extremely durable and a good quality silk product, if cared for properly, will last many years.
Sericin is a natural antibacterial agent that inhibits the growth of mould and bacteria. This makes silk particularly advantageous in humid climates where mould and bacteria flourish.
Silk’s protein structure makes it an inhospitable environment for dust mites, thus it is hypoallergenic and ideal for allergy and asthma sufferers.
Circulation is aided due to the lightness of silk. Silk duvets are generally a fraction of the weight compared to that of a similar warmth down or wool duvet. This lightness decreases discomfort felt by individuals suffering from arthritis and joint pain and allows for increased blood circulation.
Silk nestles luxuriously around the body, preventing the draftiness common to thicker duvets which can bunch. As the silk fleece within the duvet is a cohesive unit, there are none of the “cold spots” often associated with down or feather duvets.
It is well known that silk acts to keep one warm in winter and cool in summer. This is due to silk’s ability to absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling damp.
