As so many of us know all too well, fabric can be a deal breaker when it comes to purchasing your next go to piece. It’s even more important when we are shopping for sleepwear, as this is when we should feel our MOST comfortable and relaxed (am I right!). Thankfully, there’s a magical and undeniably luxurious option for sleepwear: Silk.
Silk is simply stunning and adds an instant element of glamour to every piece made from it. Silk is made from natural proteins and is extremely durable and strong which helps it retain its beauty for years. That’s why so many of our beautiful hand-me-downs and heirloom pieces that have been passed down from generation to generation are made from Silk. This truly timeless textile lends itself perfectly to our stunningly beautiful sleepwear which includes nighties, robes, PJ sets and of course, our eye-masks and pillow cases!
Not only does silk look beautiful when used for clothing, but it also has many health and beauty benefits. Silk is naturally breathable which helps your body regulate temperature throughout the year, keeping you cool in the Summer and warm in the Winter (YES!). Studies have also shown that sleeping on silk pillow cases (LINK) and wearing silk clothing can help your skin retain moisture and elasticity, making it the perfect anti-aging product. This can also help ease the symptoms of many skin conditions and, also help your hair stay healthy and shiny (it won’t ruin your blow dry either!)
There’s a reason everyone falls in-love with Silk..
- Silk is hypoallergenic and won’t irritate sensitive skin;
- Silk naturally repels mould and mildew allowing it to stay fresh for longer; and
- Silk fibres are naturally elastic and can stretch up to 20%, meaning you don’t need to worry about the fabric tearing.
Trust us, adding an element or two of our beautiful, luxurious silk to your bedtime routine will leave you looking effortlessly elegant, feeling fantastic and completely comfortable.
