What to Look for in a Silk Pillowcase

Mulberry silk

When looking for a silk pillowcase, make sure that the material is 100% mulberry silk. Mulberry silk is one of the the best quality silks that you can purchase. It comes from the Bombyx mori silkworm, which feeds exclusively on leaves from the mulberry tree, giving the silk special properties.

Silk has a grading scale that gives you information about its quality. The grading scale for silk ranges from A-C (with A being the highest quality). There is also a number grade for each letter. For example: A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A, and 6A. 

Grade 6A silk, the most luxurious and purest available, ensures a durable and smooth experience in bedding, thanks to its decreased friction.

Momme count

The higher the momme (the unit used to measure silk weight), the denser the silk will be. Blissy's 22-momme silk pillowcases are the best silk pillowcases you can find. They offer a luxurious experience while benefiting your skin and hair. With their dense weave, they compare to a 900 thread count in cotton fabric, making them a high-quality choice for anyone looking to reduce sleep wrinkles and retain moisture in their hair and skin.

Are silk pillowcases worth it?

Yes, if they are made from the highest quality silk. Otherwise, you may find irregularities, a less smooth texture, or fabric weaknesses in other silk pillowcases of a lower grade. Blissy only uses grade 6A, pure mulberry silk fabrics in their products.

Plus, Blissy silk pillowcases feature a hidden zipper closure which gives it an extra-sleek style, allowing both sides of the pillowcase to be used equally. Pillowcases with the more common envelope closure include a seam on one side of the pillowcase, which can cause sleep wrinkles.

Blissy pillowcases can be machine-washed in a mesh laundry bag for easy care, sparing you the high maintenance associated with other silk pillowcase options that you must hand wash or dry clean.

Is a Silk Pillowcase Worth It? Your Skin Says Yes!

Silk pillowcases have many beauty benefits that might surprise you. And what’s even better is that you can receive all of them while you’re sleeping!

silk prevents acne and promotes smooth skina

A Blissy silk pillowcase is:

  • Anti-aging
  • Helps prevent wrinkles and fine lines
  • Hypoallergenic and non-irritating
  • Hydrating
  • Noncomedogenic (will not clog pores)
  • Anti-bacterial
  • Bug resistant

Smoother, Softer Skin

A silk pillowcase will reduce friction on hair and skin and help prevent fine lines and wrinkles

from forming on facial skin. Silk doesn’t absorb skincare products either, unlike cotton. So expensive lotions, creams, and oils won’t be wasted.

Sleeping on a silk pillowcase keeps moisture in the skin and is ideal for those trying to rid themselves of acne, skin irritation, dryness, and other skin issues.

Sensitive Skin

Silk pillowcases are hypoallergenic, which makes them a great choice for those with allergies, sensitive skin, or skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.

Are Silk Pillowcases Worth It? Your Hair Also Says Yes!

Blissy’s pure silk pillowcases have amazing benefits for both skin and hair. While all hair types benefit from a silk pillowcase, high-maintenance curly or natural hair especially loves a silk pillowcase. Chemically-treated hair too! Straight hair will also benefit greatly from sleeping on silk, as silk keeps more moisture in the hair, leading to smoother, frizz-free, healthier hair for all!

Benefits for hair include: 

  • Glossy, smoother hair texture
  • Less frizz: pure silk satin has reduced friction–nearly half the amount of friction as cotton pillowcases.
  • Softer, smoother hair
  • Silk pillowcases help the hair not to tangle.
  • Silk pillowcases allow you to keep hair products in your hair (silk won’t absorb hair products).
  • Will prevent split-ends and breakage
Did You Know: Silk naturally contains the protein sericin, which helps you say goodbye to frizzy hair.
