Many people don’t see the point of silk bedding. All they see is a large price tag. However, there are many benefits of silk that make it worthwhile. In fact, those who have actually tried silk bedding are shocked by how much it improves their quality of sleep. Once they’ve slept under silk, they often have a difficult time switching back to their rough, cotton bedding. For them, silk is no longer a want, but a need.
Now, you might think that’s ridiculous. How can silk be something you need in your life? To answer that question, here are some ways silk bedding improves your quality of sleep and quality of life.
The first, and most significant, advantage of silk bedding is it prevents overheating. When you sleep under traditional bedding, most of your body heat and sweat are trapped under the covers with you. However, silk bedding efficiently vents this heat and moisture away.
As a matter of fact, silk wicks heat and moisture away at twice the rate of cotton, which reduces the humidity in your bed by 50%. This means that even on the hottest nights, silk keeps you at the perfect temperature all night long, letting you get the sleep you need.
Wicking all that excess heat and moisture away has another effect in addition to keeping you cool – it also reduces allergies. Removing extra moisture reduces allergies, because it prevents common allergens, such as dust mites, from living in your bed. Like all living things, dust mites need water to survive. Without it, they can’t grow and multiply in your bed, allowing you to breathe easy.
Furthermore, silk is naturally hypoallergenic. Very few people are allergic to silk while many people are allergic to cotton and other cheap materials. Consequently, you aren’t woken up by coughing or sneezing if you sleep under silk bedding.
The next reason why you need silk in your life is it reduces your exposure to dangerous chemicals. In today’s world, we are exposed to chemicals all the time. For example, cotton bedding is treated with harsh chemicals to make it fire and wrinkle resistant. When you sleep under cotton sheets and a cheap comforter, these chemicals rub against your skin all night long, and you breathe them in with every breath.
100% organic silk bedding, on the other hand, isn’t treated with these harsh chemicals. The chemicals used to make cotton bedding fire and wrinkle resistant would ruin silk’s soft, smooth texture. Besides, silk is already fire and wrinkle resistant. Since silk doesn’t need to be treated with these harsh chemicals, you are never exposed to them when you sleep under silk bedding.
In addition to improving your overall health, silk also soothes sore skin. Silk soothes sore skin because of its soft, smooth texture. For example, if you have a sunburn or rash, silk gently glides over the sore areas of your skin. In contrast, cheap cotton bedding catches on broken, uneven skin, irritating it even more. When you sleep under silk, you never need to worry about your sheets chafing your skin, and your sunburn or rash actually has a chance to heal.
Silk’s sumptuous, smooth texture doesn’t only help heal sore skin; it also improves your overall complexion. Since silk is so smooth, sleeping under silk bedding decreases the amount of friction against your skin. As a result, your skin looks clearer and more even. Moreover, your hair tears less when you sleep on a silk pillow, giving it a healthy, shiny glow.

As you can see, silk provides incredible bang for your buck, because it improves your quality of sleep and your overall appearance. For instance, when you sleep under silk sheets and an organic comforter, your quality of sleep dramatically improves. Since you aren’t repeatedly waking up from overheating or an allergy attack, you sleep through the night.
Additionally, you’re healthier, because you aren’t breathing in dangerous chemicals all night long. Finally, your skin and hair look more radiate because of silk’s soft, smooth texture. With all of these astonishing qualities, it’s no wonder some people can’t sleep under anything other than silk.
