Why have cotton when you can have silk?

If there’s one thing we are certain of, it’s that silk and cotton are two of the most in demand fabrics the market has ever seen.

We use them for a wide range of our clothes, pillowcases and fashionable accessories, so you just can’t help but wonder which is the better fabric!

Both have their own pros and cons but everyone knows that silk is the key to boosting your hair health and getting that beautifully radiant skin back.

After all, a touch of luxury is surely worth the cost if it makes you feel as wonderful as silk does.

SILK OR COTTON PILLOWCASES?

While both fabrics make super comfy pillowcases, there are so many differences that set silk much higher up in the quality rankings than cotton.

When it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, everyone wants to know the secret to keeping cool without going to extreme measures. The answer is temperature!

Pillowcases heavily impact body temperature, and when you select cotton sheets, you are far more likely to wake in the night and become too hot or too cold.

Keeping the right temperature is a vital step towards getting the perfect night’s sleep and since your pillowcase also play a huge part in this, it’s important that you select a high-quality material such as silk.

Whereas cotton quickly releases heat and offers limited breathability, silk is generally considered the perfect insulator.

A silk pillowcase lets your skin breathe while you enjoy a peaceful and uninterpreted sleep.

Better yet, you can even use silk throughout every season as it is perfect at insulating when the temperature drops, but also great at keeping you nice and cool during the warmer seasons.

QUANTITY HAS A QUALITY OF ITS OWN

That old saying, ‘’quantity has a quality of its own’’ is true you know.

When it comes to silk and cotton, silk is generally priced higher and boasts a great deal more value for money than cotton does.

Whereas cotton can be bought at high street prices and is one of the most common fabrics used in homes across the country.

But why have cotton when you can have silk, right? Seriously, silk is incredible for your hair and works wonders on your skin!

Whether you buy a soft silk pillow or a Mulberry silk pillowcase, we guarantee that it will be the best investment of your life!

And like we said before, when choosing between silk or cotton pillowcases, you are much more likely to thank yourself for choosing Mulberry silk instead of those average cotton alternatives.

A HEALTHY YOU MEANS A HAPPIER YOU

Aside from getting a good night’s sleep, silk has many other benefits but much to your surprise, it can have a positive impact on your health.

Sleeping on a pure silk pillowcase, silk bed sheets or even wearing a silk sleep mask is much kinder to your skin than the cheaper cotton alternatives.

Although you may find that cotton is more affordable, silk is proven to offer incredible value for money. Not to mention that a healthier you is always a happier you.

Silk contains some vital amino acids which help to replenish damaged hair and skin, so you will wake up feeling fully refreshed.

From pure silk pillowcases to Mulberry silk sleep masks and so much more, silk has proven to be a worthwhile investment for many people looking to revive their hair health and boost their skin glow.

Unlike cotton, silk is a natural hypoallergenic. With its ability to release sweat rather than absorb it this means that no bacteria gets stuck in the fabric allowing your face to be in contact with a cleaner surface area reducing irritation and break outs.
