Why silk satin pillowcases cost more than non-silk satin pillowcases?
Firstly, satin is a weave, NOT a fabric. Do not mix satin pillowcase with silk pillowcase!
Secondly, a satin weave can be made from silk or other non-silk fabrics such as polyester and nylon.
That’s why those non-silk satin pillowcases are much cheaper than silk satin pillowcases!
Only the pure mulberry silk pillowcase with a satin weave or charmeuse silk pillowcases can bring full health benefits of silk.
Pay for a little bit more money, but enjoy huge and eternal health benefits, why not?

LILYSILK’s silk pillowcases
We at LILYSILK promise you that, unless stated on the product page, all our silk pillowcases are made of 100% pure and natural mulberry silk with a satin weave and nothing else.
Skin-care and sleep-promoting
Pure mulberry silk is composed of animal protein containing 18 essential amino acids, which is known for its effectiveness in skin nourishment and aging prevention. Most importantly, the amino acid is able to give out a special molecule substance which makes people peaceful and calm, promoting sleep throughout the night.
Smooth and hair beauty
Unlike other chemical fabrics, silk is the most natural fiber extracted from the silkworm, and the weaves are much tighter that of other textiles. The ultimate smooth and softness of silk pillowcases keep your hair gorgeous and soft as no other pillowcases can. No more sleep-crease or messy hair in the morning after using pure silk pillowcases for a period of time.
Absorptive of moisture and breathable
Silk-fibroin in silkworm is capable of absorbing and transpiring sweat or moisture, keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter, especially for those allergenic sufferers, eczema and those who stay in bed for long period of time. That's why dermatologists and doctors always recommend silk bedding for their patients.
Anti-bacterial and wonderfully soft
The sericin contained in silk prevents the invasion of mites and dust efficiently. In addition, silk has a similar structure of human's skin, which makes silk bed linens wonderfully soft and anti-static. Silk pillowcases keep your skin and hair gorgeous and soft as no other pillowcases can. No more “sleep-crease” or a “sleep line” in the morning.
What is Momme in silk fabric?
Mommes (mm), is a unit traditionally used to measure the quality of silk fabrics. One momme = 4.340 grams per square meter; 8 mommes is approximately 1 ounce per square yard or 35 grams per square meter. The usual range of momme weight for different weaves of silk are:
Gauze—3 to 5 mm
Organza—4 to 6 mm
Habotai—12 to 16 mm
Chiffon—6 to 8 mm (can be made in double thickness, i.e. 12 to 16 mm)
Crepe de Chine—12 to 16 mm
Raw silk—35 to 40 mm (heavier silks appear more 'wooly') Charmeuse—12 to 30 mm
The higher momme weight the better?
Yes and no. It depends. Normally, the higher the momme weight, the more durable the weave, the more luxurious the fabric is, the more suitable it is for heavy-duty use, and the longer the shelf-life. Generally, all silks can be washed and the heavier ones can be washed repeatedly. The heavier the silk, the more opaque it becomes. This can vary even between the same kind of silk. For example, lightweight Charmeuse is translucent when used in clothing, but 30-momme charmeuse is opaque. Therefore, it does not mean that you must always buy silk products with higher momme weight. For instance, it would be too heavy to put on 25mm silk sleepwear for the night, but 19mm silk sleepwear is not that durable, though. In a word, it is a question of making proper choices according to your own needs.
What is the best momme weight of silk bedding?
For bedding, the higher the weight in momme, the better the silk bedding is. Sheets between 19-25 momme are considered ideal. silk with momme weight lower than 19 is not suitable for the production of quality silk bedding linen. Beware of sellers trying to trick you into buying inferior quality sheets without declaring the momme weight. Always ask for this measurement before you buy. Here at LILYSILK, we offer 3 different momme weight classes. Starting from the entry-level 19 momme, LILYSILK also offers intermediate 22 momme and luxury 25 momme weight classes for your choosing.
What is thread count?
Thread count or threads per inch (TPI) is a measure of the coarseness or fineness of certain fabrics, most notably cotton. While it is not the definitive measurement of the quality of silk fabrics, it is good for reference when you purchase silk online. It is measured by counting the number of threads contained in one square inch of fabric or one square centimeter, including both the length (warp) and width (weft) threads. The thread count is the number of threads counted along two sides (up and across) of the square inch, added together.
What are the thread counts of LILYSILK’s sheet?
Thread-count is not as important in silk products as it is for cotton, as in silk threads can vary greatly in terms of diameter and length. However, it is still something that should be noted when purchasing silk. For silk products with same momme weight, the one with higher thread count is usually considered to be better. Normally, the 19mm silk has a thread count of 300-350, LILYSILK’s 19mm silk usually has a minimum thread-count of 400 which is already what some would refer to as “luxury”, our 22mm has a thread-count of 600 and our 25mm silk an even higher 750 which is why we insist that our products are truly the best on the market.
