More about Comforter – SILK MATERIALS

After purchasing a silk comforter you may wonder how is a silk comforter made?

The filling of Lasin Beddings silk comforter is made of 100% Mulberry silk. The silk filling is layered by hand, one layer at a time. This is done by skilled workers using traditional methods. A silk comforter requires easily over 10,000 cocoons of silk. You will seldom see such high quality of silk comforters on the market. Each silk comforter is then inspected individually before packing.

Silk is known today as a smooth, shiny, stunning, luxurious, and sensual fabric. However, the biggest mystical secret of silk is in its practical function to provide warmth. Silk comforters have been used by the upper class for thousands of years in Asia. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic, inhospitable to dust mites, wicks moisture and is naturally produced. Comforters made with 100% silk, is the best alternative to down or wool comforters.

One of the unique benefits of Mulberry Silk is that it is 100% natural, odorless and hypoallergenic. Mulberry silk contains a natural protein called sercine that reduces the possibility of an allergic reaction. Therefore, Mulberry silk bedding is a healthy and safe choice for those with allergies.

Silk is naturally healthy for human bodies. The characteristics of silk such as to help maintain bodily health, skin protection, warm in winter and cool in summer, etc., have been passed along as a tradition for centuries. Only recently with the scientific advancement of biochemistry, more secrets are revealed. Such as the discovery of Sericin-a viscous gelatinous protein that forms on the surface of raw-silk fibers. Japanese studies showed Sericin prevents and reverses damaged skin from sunlight and different chemicals. Sericin binds to the keratin of skin and hair, forming a protective film. Highly moisture-binding and film-forming, Sericin imparts a unique and highly aesthetic skin feel.

IMPORTANT NOTE

It is important to check the materials before making a decision on ANY bedding products including comforter, pillows etc. Although you may see they are advertised as “silk” products, if you take a closer look at the materials, many bedding products in the market are now filled with a mix of polyester and silk or Habotai and mixed silks. Lasin Bedding is proud of providing silk comforter filled with 100% long strand mulberry silk.
