Silk bedding is ideal for people with allergies. This is because silk contains sericin, a natural protein that the body produces. It also contains 18 amino acids that are similar to the ones found in human skin. These substances make silk mildew and mold resistant. It has a small chance of triggering an allergic reaction.
Cozy Earth shares the following benefits of using a silk comforter:
Silk has a natural ability to wrap and drape around the human body. The hugging effect helps get rid of cold spots. It will make you feel warm faster, and keep it that way for a long time.
Silk floss fillings offer the same level of warmth you get from down fillings. The best part is, silk is much lighter than down.
Silk floss filling uses a layering system that helps control temperature. It releases excess heat via its breathable layers when the weather is hot. When it is cold, it retains body heat. This way, you will neither feel too hot nor too cold when using a silk comforter.
Silk fiber superior resiliency and strength. In fact, it is stronger than a steel fiber of the same size. Long silk floss, likewise, tends to stick to one another. Thus, silk filament layers are bonded well and have less tendency to pull apart. The silk floss may turn yellowish after several years of use because of the oxidation process. But, the texture and softens of the silk floss in the comforter will remain the same. With proper care, your silk bedding can last for 30 years or more.
When used the right way, no dry cleaning or washing is necessary. Silk’s mold and mildew-resistant nature is responsible for this. You can say that comforters made from silk are the most maintenance-free comforters you can find on the market.
These are only a few of the many benefits of using silk bedding, making it a wise investment.
