An Overview On Silk Pillowcases

Silk pillowcases provide a smooth, cool, comfortable place to rest your head at night. But there’s more to sleeping on silk than comfort. Silk pillowcases have also been shown to have beauty benefits not found with cotton or polyester pillowcases.

If you sleep on your side or stomach, silk can be especially helpful. Cotton can create friction as your skin moves across it, creating creases in the skin. With silk, your skin slides across easily. Silk also doesn’t absorb your skin’s natural oils the way cotton does, so you’ll retain more moisture as you sleep.

But back sleepers get their own benefits. As with the skin, silk pillowcases resist absorbing the hair’s natural oils as cotton pillowcases do. That can help your hair retain its natural luster. The lack of friction can also help keep your hair frizz- and tangle-free.

Although these benefits are nice, consumers often choose silk pillowcases due to their comfort and appearance. Not only does it make bedtime a little better, but it looks nice on top of your bed. With so many different colors available, you can usually find the perfect pillowcase to match your décor. With proper care, they’ll also hold up after many uses and washes.

DWYM Fun Fact

When you’re shopping for silk pillowcases, it’s important to look for products labeled 100 percent pure mulberry silk. Mulberry silk is the best silk you can buy. It comes from the Bombyx mori silkworm, which is a species of silkworm that eats only leaves from the mulberry tree. This silk has been made in China for the past 4,000 years, and the fibers are smoother and stronger than all other silk varieties, giving you both a softness and durability you won’t find in other types. Typically, a telltale sign that a piece of bedding is pure mulberry silk is the price. This type of silk is often more expensive than other types of silk, satin or cotton.

The Silk Pillowcase Buying Guide

  • Although there are some beauty benefits found with silk pillowcases, some manufacturers will go beyond what silk can do. Silk pillowcases have not been able to clear up or prevent acne and the material itself will not increase the oil coming into your skin. It simply doesn’t absorb oils the way cotton does. The same goes for hair. Manufacturers will claim silk pillowcases can moisturize your hair when all they can really do is prevent oils that are in your hair from being absorbed.
  • The fibers in silk naturally regulate temperature to help keep you cool. You may not find that you’re cooler with silk than you would be with cotton, though.
  • One downside to silk is care. Often, silk bedding requires that you hand wash and air dry. Even if a silk pillowcase’s care instructions allow a machine wash, you may find that you get a softer, smoother texture by handwashing.
  • Some silk pillowcases have zippers that make it easy to insert and remove your pillows. If that’s the case, make sure the zipper is hidden to avoid it coming into contact with your skin while you’re sleeping.
  • With silk, it’s not just the type of fiber and thread count, but also the length of the fiber. You’ll see silk listed with grades. That’s because silk is rated using a scale from A to C. A is top quality while C is the lowest quality. In addition to letters, there are also numbers ranging from 1 to 6. For the best quality silk, look for one rated 6A.
