Momme, is the gauge by which silk is measured.
Silk cannot be measured the same as cotton, by thread count because the thread is so fine it has to be woven very finely and then the weight per metre determines the momme.
The best weight for silk pillowcases is 22, 19 would be too fine and would wear through quite quickly, anything above 22 is more like curtain material, so you don’t get the fine look and soft feel.
Silk pillowcases are not only luxurious and gorgeous, they are also very durable.
For laundering, you can place them in with your other bedding on a warm wash, tumble dry them and then put them straight back onto the pillows, totally no fuss required.
A Guide To Buying Silk Pillowcases
For centuries, silk has been the standard for luxury and quality in the world of fabrics, and though there was once a time when silks were only available to the elite members of society, today it has become more accessible than ever before.
Apart from the general air of luxuriousness, silk pillowcases and silk bedding also has very concrete benefits like influencing healthier skin and hair (which makes it popular within the beauty industry).
The following overview of different types of silk pillowcases should help you to make a more informed decision if you are currently thinking about going silk!
Why do we use pillowcases to begin with?
Though some pillows come with a soft exterior layer themselves, the major logic behind using a pillowcase nevertheless revolves around cleanliness.
It is much simpler and easier to clean and dry your pillowcases periodically then to get your pillows dry-cleaned or otherwise professionally washed.
Even if you are an extremely clean person, the naturally produced oils of your skin can dirty a pillow or its case quite quickly.
Different types of pillowcases
- Housewife Pillowcase: We’re not sure where the name for these pillowcases comes from, but “housewife” cases refer to the ones that have a button, zipper, or envelope closure in order to hold the pillow in place. These are the most common style of silk pillowcases since silk is so smooth and can slip off your pillow easily without some sort of fastening.
- Bag style Pillowcase: these pillowcases don’t have anything to hold them onto the pillow, which is fine for some fabrics though not for silk in particular for the above mentioned reason.
- Oxford or Mock Oxford Pillowcase: these pillows have an envelope style enclosure like some housewife cases, but they also have a 2-3 inch border around the pillow and are often used as a decorative public room pillows more so than for bedroom pillows.
How to choose the right silk pillowcase for you
There are many, many options available, as well as many, many variables to consider such as pure vs silk blend, design or style, or the dying process.
Reading customer reviews can also give you an impression of the comfort and durability of specific products.
However if you aim for high quality you will find that the variables will drastically shrink as the best products all tend to be produced with the highest standards (not to mention resulting in the most comfortable and longest-lasting results).
The density of silk is measured in a unit knows as “Momme” or “mm”. The number of the Momme weight will give you an idea of how many strands of silk are woven into the fabric of your pillowcases.
A 19mm silk fabric, for example, would mean that the fabric has 19 lbs of silk in 100 yards of material, so the higher the number, the denser or higher-quality (as well as heavier) the silk will be.
Silk pillowcases are definitely the standard in comfort and beauty, not to mention the benefits they have for your skin and hair. Moreover, because of the delicateness of the fabric, they are almost never died using harsh chemicals that would also irritate your skin.
Add in moister and younger looking skin on your face, and saying goodbye to bed-head in the morning, and you really can’t go wrong switching to silk for your pillowcases!
