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

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.


In general:

12 momme suitable for scarves

12 to 16 momme suitable for silk sleepwear

19 and 22 is suitable for silk bed linen.

Do not buy silk bed linen under 19 Momme, it is too thin for intensive use. 19 momme is ideal, 22 momme is even better and more sustainable.
