What's different about a silk duvet?
Silk, unline any other bedding.
Silk filled duvets are unlike any other duvet on the market. Keeping us cool in summer and warm in winter, they can help us regulate our body heat while we sleep. Because our body heat is kept more constant throughout the night, we are less restless and are able to fall into a deeper, more relaxing and refreshing sleep.
Layered by hand to enhance heat regulation
Silksleep duvets are able to aid body heat regulation because of the quality of silk used and the way in which the silk is layered. During the manufacturing process long-fiber mulberry silk is stretched and then layered in a grid pattern until the desired tog rating and weight is achieved. Because of the way the silk is layered in an grid pattern, the completed duvet is less bulky than it's down and polyester counterparts.
Because silk duvets are made up of layer upon layer of silk, they are able to allow some of our body heat to escape through them while we sleep. Conventional duvets work much like a pressure cooker. We lie under them and our body heat is reflected back to us. This continues throughout the night creating more and more heat until we can't take the temperature anymore and throw the duvet off. By allowing some of the heat to escape, silk duvets keep us at a more constant temperature and we therefore have a better sleep.
The finest silk to ensure quality & health benefits.
100% long-fiber mulberry silk filled duvets are preferable to any other silk filled or silk mixed duvet. Short fiber silk filled duvets are unable to work as efficiently because they are filled with off cuts of silk and layering of the silk fiber is not possible. There are considerable health benefits to sleeping under a silk filled duvet. Please take a look at our Health Benefits page for more information.

One week on and it's hard to imagine a life without my silk duvets, how I ever slept before I honestly don't know.
