Important tips for buying silk bed linen
Important tips for buying silk bed linen:
- Seam or seamless
Cheap silk sheets or duvet covers are often with seams, they use small width silk fabric and sewing them together either in the middle or on the both sides. Seamless silk bed linen uses the silk which is woven on very large looms so there are no seams. It is more expensive and more luxury.

Momme (mm) is the unit of weight per square meter silk. Momme has traditionally been used to measure the density of silk.
The higher the weight in mommes, the thicker the fabric is and the better it is resistant to heavy use. The higher the momme the more expensive is the fabric.
