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 sheets that make it worthwhile. In fact, those who have actually tried silk bedding are usually surprised by how it can improve their quality of sleep and skin.

How can silk bedding be something you need in your life? To answer that question, here are some benefits of silk bedding:

  1. Silk Helps Regulate Temperature

The first, and most significant, advantage of silk bedding is it simultaneously prevents overheating and keeps cool sleepers warm. 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.

  1. Silk is Inhospitable to Some Allergens

As a fabric, silk can help reduce some symptoms of common allergens like dust mites.  Understanding where silk comes from can help explain this unique trait. When a silkworm spins it cocoon of one continuous thread of silk, that cocoon is designed to protect the silkworm, this makes its thread highly durable, and the sericin, the sticky product that keeps the cocoon together, helps protect it from pests. 

  1. Decreases Your Chemical Exposure

In today’s world, we are exposed to chemicals all the time. For example, cotton is referred to as the "world's dirtiest crop" because of the pesticides and insecticides that are used. 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 chemical residues rub against your skin all night long, and release VOCs into the air.

On the other hand, silk typically only needs water, heat, and steam to be manufactured into a textile. Plus, since silk comes from silkworms, there are no insecticides or pesticides used like on plant-based counterparts.

  1. Silk Soothes Skin

Silk soothes sore skin because of its soft, smooth texture. 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 outbreaks, sunburns, and rashes actually have a chance to heal. Beauty experts tout silk for its skin-improving properties and as a way to reduce tangles, frizz, and breakages in hair. Silk has even been shown to provide improvements in a small study of people with dermatitis!
