Are silk bedding better than cotton bedding?

Sleep enthusiasts have debated whether silk or cotton bedding is better for generations. Upon closer inspection, it is clear that silk is smooth and elegant, while cotton is textured and rugged. These microscopic differences are essential when selecting bedding that enhances your sleep experience.

Under the microscope, silk unfolds a world of smoothness and lustre, reflecting light in a way cotton cannot replicate. On the flip side, cotton weaves a textured story—a rough, distinctive feel against the skin.


Let's have a closer look

Cotton Pillowcases: The Textured Tale

Cotton pillowcases can be a great choice for bedding as they are available in a variety of colours, patterns, and textures at an affordable price. However, they may not be the best option for a good night's sleep if you have sensitive skin. On closer inspection, you'll notice that cotton pillowcases have raw fibers and a rough surface that can trap moisture and dirt. This can lead to discomfort and irritation.

Silk Pillowcases: A Smoother Sleep Experience

With their smooth and lustrous appearance, silk pillowcases offer more than just a sumptuous touch. The reduced friction minimizes hair breakage, prevents sleep lines, and provides an indulgent sleep experience. Enhanced breathability, hypoallergenic properties, moisture-wicking, and resistance to mould and dust mites make silk pillowcases a preferred choice for those seeking an improved sleeping experience.Closeup of Deepsilk pillowcase
