What is the difference between a satin pillowcase and a silk pillowcase?

Silk and satin are soft and similar fabrics, but they are not the same. Silk is a natural material, made from silkworm cocoons, it is very resistant and has a brighter appearance. Satin, on the other hand, is a material that is made from combinations of silk, polyester or nylon threads.

The main differences between a silk cover and a satin cover are:

- Satin does not absorb water, so it can be uncomfortable when worn next to the skin in hot weather. Silk on the other hand is an all-weather fabric, it can be warm in winter and cool in summer.

- Satin does not have hypoallergenic properties, unlike silk, which is inhospitable to mites, immune to fungi and resistant to mold and deterioration.

- Satin being an artificial fabric created from oil has a chemical composition similar to plastic bottles, which can be harmful to the skin. Silk, on the other hand, is completely natural, providing health benefits.

 

How do I know that a product is made from real silk?

A product made from real silk is:

- Soft to the touch, while synthetic has a more viscous texture;

- The drape of natural silk is lighter, more delicate and subtle than synthetic silk;

- Real silk is capable of perspiring, unlike synthetic silk.

 

What is a momme?

Momme (mm) is a unit used to measure the quality and weight of silk fabrics. The higher the momme of a silk, the thicker and more durable it is.

At Dream on Silk our products are made with 22 momme, making them resistant and durable to washing and use.

 

What do the experts say?

Dr. Lily Talakoub, McLean Center for Dermatology and Skin Care, USA. assures that “Silk is a hypoallergenic fabric. Unlike cotton, it can have high allergic properties silk does not, which means that if you are allergic, it will reduce redness, attraction and congestion”.

Dermatologist Debra Jaliman, author of the book Skin Rules: Trade secrets from a Top New York Dermatologist, states that “silk fabric reduces marks and wrinkles on the face, in addition to preventing the hair from rubbing against the sheet, reducing frizz”.
