Silk filled duvets are not anything new in fact they have been around for thousands of years.
Finally the secret of a blissful nights sleep is here. If you are one of the millions of people who wake up in the middle of the night being too hot, too cold or just plain uncomfortable – help is at hand! silk filled duvets can change the way you sleep forever.
Not only are silk filled duvets revolutionising the way we sleep, they are also good for us.
Silk filled duvets that have been manufactured by hand using 100% pure mulberry silk, and layered in an intricate grid pattern have some amazing properties. Because mulberry silk is a natural fibre dust mites find it an inhospitable environment to live in. Silk duvets will last for years and if cared for correctly will outlast any conventional duvet. Properly cared for silk will not get brittle like down over time, nor will it clump like polyester creating cold sports.
Conventional duvets work by reflecting our body heat back to us, thus creating a physical barrier between ourselves and the outside room. The result is a bit like a pressure cooker – heat builds up until we become uncomfortable and the covers are thrown off. Silk filled duvets are completely different in that they allow some of our body heat to dissipate. Because of this we are kept at a more even temperature throughout the night, and as a result have a better sleep.
When purchasing silk filled duvets beware of imitations. Long fibre silk duvets are preferable to short fibre. Long fibre silk duvets are essentially layers and layers of silk that have been built up in an intricate grid pattern. These layers are then stitched between a cotton outer to create a duvet. The more layers of silk, the warmer the duvet will be.
