Reduced Allergy Symptoms:
Mulberry Silk is naturally repellent to dust mites, so it is perfect for anyone who suffers from dust mite allergies or asthma. Silk bedding also resists mildew and mould, making it ideal for anyone with a mould allergy or allergic asthma. Silk bedding is naturally hypoallergenic which is beneficial for allergies and asthma but it can also be highly beneficial for those suffering from eczema, psoriasis or other sensitive skin conditions as it is non-irritating and contains naturally occurring amino acids.
Natural Fibers & Chemical Free:
Mulberry silk is universally accepted to be the very best silk in the world. This is because it can be used in its natural state – no chemicals, additives or any kind of treatment is required. Cotton, polyester, viscose, and other fabrics are commonly treated with various harsh chemicals to make them fire-resistant. When sleeping under cotton bedding, these chemicals rub against the skin and can be irritating for those with specific skin conditions or generally sensitive skin. Our authentic 100% Mulberry Silk bedding is of such a high quality that it can be used in its natural state, it is not treated with any chemicals, bleaches or additives protecting the beneficial qualities of the silk for a soothing, comfortable sleep..
Anti-ageing – nourishes skin and hair
Mulberry silk bedding protects the skin and helps delay skin ageing, nourishes and protects the hair, due to the protein sericin and amino acids that occur naturally in mulberry silk. Silk proteins have been shown to increase hydration of the epidermal cells and reduce moisture loss.
Comfort & Breathability:

It also promotes relaxation in the central nervous system and self-regulates temperature for snug sleeping
The natural properties of silk wick away moisture from the body to keep you cool and comfortable all night, a natural method of preventing overheating. This makes silk duvets, silk pillowcases and silk mattress toppers an excellent choice for anyone who suffers from night sweats or hot flushes.

This is attributed to the natural drape of silk, typically labelled the “hugging effect” which also helps to maintain the body’s heat in wintry conditions.
