Mulberry silk bed sheets are some of the most coveted bedding in the world. While not as popular as Egyptian cotton, it's still a lesser known luxury bedding that is unmatched anywhere in the world.
The silk fibers that come from a very specific silk worm that are only fed mulberry leaves are more uniform, longer and more luxurious than any other silk by far. It starts out as white as snow, but takes dye well. The longer and more uniform fibers make for stronger silk, giving a more lustrous feel and superior lifespan compared to other silks on the market today.
We're not done yet, there are many more benefits to this silk. It sleeps cooler, will give you a sleep quality like you never thought possible, it's hypoallergenic, antibacterial and is not a disaster to the environment.
Before you get overly excited about where to buy mulberry silk sheets, make sure you understand momme. Momme (mm) is a unit of measurement by weight on silk fabrics. If your momme is too low, you will get poor lifespans, if it's too high, you get rough, more course sheets. Most recommend a momme weight of 18 to 25 to hit that perfect silky feel we all want and expect from mulberry silk.
