A romantic New Year's Eve at home

Silk Fabric: Timeless Luxury Made to Indulge Your Senses

Silk -- a natural fiber spun by silkworms -- has a rich history dating back more than 4,000 years to ancient China, where it was reserved exclusively for royalty. Silk has always been associated with opulence and elegance. Its rarity and luxurious texture made it a status symbol throughout the Middle Ages, when desire for silk fostered trade and exploration along the fabled Silk Road.

Today, silk maintains its place as one of the most luxurious textiles in the world of home décor. Simply put, pure mulberry silk offers a tactile experience unlike any other. At the same time, the smooth surface and subtle sheen add a touch of glamor to any space. The natural luster of silk reflects light beautifully, creating a soft, glowing effect that enhances the overall atmosphere and ambiance of a room. You can see this effect in silk draperies, upholstery, throw pillows, and -- most of all -- in luxurious silk bedding like silk sheets from Mulberry Park Silks.

The Many Health and Wellness Benefits to Sleeping on Pure Silk Sheets

The indulgent feel is reason enough to choose a set of pure silk bed sheets. But we would be remiss if we didn't enlighten you to the myriad beauty and wellness benefits to sleeping on silk. In fact, just sleeping on pure silk sheets gives you a great jump start to your New Year's self-care resolutions:

  • Hydrates hair and skin: Sleeping on a silk pillowcase is the ultimate beauty insider's secret for keeping hair and skin well hydrated. It follows that silk sheets do the same for your entire body. Like your hair and skin, silk fiber is protein based and contains natural amino acids that promote hydration.
  • Tames bedhead, frizz, and tangles. The smooth surface of a pure silk bed linen is nearly friction free. This means your hair glides across the surface, which minimizes damage and protects your hair.
  • Prevents sleep wrinkles. Again, the friction-free surface of silk stops sleep creases and wrinkle formation.
  • Regulates body temperature. Real silk sheets are breathable and naturally regulate body temperature to keep you cool in summer, warm in winter, and sleeping comfortably in all conditions.
  • Hypoallergenic: Silk thread -- spun from the protective cocoon of the silk worm -- is naturally hypoallergenic and ideal for even the most sensitive skin. Silk naturally repels allergens and dust mites for a clean, comfortable, and irritation-free night's sleep.

Choose Your Perfect Silk Sheets

Here at Fine Linen and Bath, we carry pure silk sheets from our sister company, Mulberry Park Silks. These are, quite simply, the finest silk sheets on the market; they represent the highest quality and a wonderful value for our discerning clients. Here's why:

  1. They are made from 100 percent real silk of the highest quality (6A). Only pure silk sheets (not satin sheets, which are a synthetic fiber) deliver the beauty benefits and luxurious feel you deserve.
  2. A range of momme weights. Similar to thread count in cotton sheets, momme is a measure of the density and softness of the fabric. Mulberry Park silk sheets are available in 19 momme, 22 momme, and 30 momme weights.

  3. Versatility. Mulberry Park Silks sheets are available in a range of colors. You can also purchase a complete silk bedding set, or the flat sheet, fitted sheet, and pillowcases separately. Some people also prefer sleeping on a silk fitted sheet under a silk duvet cover with no flat sheet.
  4. Safety. While silk is naturally hypoallergenic, Mulberry Park Silks has taken extra steps to ensure safety. All Mulberry Park Silks Bedding is OEKO-TEX Certified (Standard 100) to be safe from harmful chemicals and colored with environmentally friendly dyes.

Silk Sheets are easy to wash and care for.

Silk Sheets are Surprisingly Easy to Wash

While silk is definitely a bit more delicate than cotton, your silk sheets can be washed at home with just a bit of extra care. We recommend washing a silk-only load and placing each piece of silk bedding in a mesh laundry bag (you can double up pillowcases) to protect them during the wash cycle. You should choose a gentle, enzyme-free detergent made to clean silk and other protein-based fibers like these Silk detergents. Wash on a silk or delicate cycle in cool water (never use bleach or fabric softener). Avoid putting your silk sheets in the dryer; instead, hang them to dry indoors or outside away from direct sunlight. You can learn more about how to care for your silk sheets here.

Of course, you don't need to wait for a special occasion to sleep on pure silk sheets. But planning for a romantic New Year's Eve at home is a great time to start. Silk sheets from Mulberry Park Silks will absolutely elevate your sleep experience while helping you de-stress and unwind after a busy holiday season. They're the perfect accessory for a romantic and indulgent night's rest.
