If you want to feel like you are royalty, then you must own a pair of luxury silk pajamas. Silk is a natural earth product. And like all natural fibers, it lets your skin breathe and allows your body to maintain a stable temperature. On cool evenings, the silk will wrap your body in a cocoon and your body heat will not escape. You will be cradled in warmth and luxurious sensations. However, in the summer months it can even keep the warm air out allowing your skin to breathe and remain comfortable. Silk pajamas outperform other fabrics in summer and in winter.
When you purchase bedding, you pay careful attention to the thread count. With silk, you want to pay special attention to the 16 momme (pronounced mummy) factor. There are many grades of silk. Silk with the higher number, like 16, means it is a higher quality fabric. The higher momme count means the greater the concentration of silk threads per square meter. Just as you would want the confidence of a high thread count, you will want the availability of a high momme count.
Good quality silk is made with long, smooth, natural fibers tightly woven together. Because of this process and the natural proteins in the fabric, silk helps to prevent skin’s loss of moisture and is well tolerated by people with sensitive skin. When we block the loss of moisture, we prevent premature aging and formation of wrinkles and flaky skin. Doctors claim that very few people are allergic to silk. Actually, silk does not contain any chemicals and those special silk proteins that help prevent loss of moisture also ward off common allergens like dust mites, mold and fungus. Silk is the most hypoallergenic of all fabrics.
How often have you gone to bed in the winter with the heat setting on low but you still wake up with your skin feeling tight and dry? This would be a long forgotten reaction if you were sleeping in a pair of luxury silk pajamas.
Although the feel of silk is smooth and delicate, it is a remarkably strong fiber and the fabric lasts for years without deterioration. One pair of silk pajamas can out-last and out-class synthetic materials. Silk is wrinkle and tear-resistant, and because it dries very quickly, it can absorb up to 30% its weight in moisture without feeling damp.
