  5. What is Momme in Silk Fabric?

    What is Momme in Silk Fabric?

    What does "momme" mean in silk fabric?

    Momme [mom-ee] is a Japanese word used as a unit of weight measurement for real silk. Momme, often abbreviated as mm, is defined as the weight in pounds of a piece of fabric sized 45 inches x 100 yards. That is an incredibly long piece of fabric -- about the length of a football field! To put it terms closer to the size of sheets: one momme equates to about 4.340 grams per square meter. Eight momme fabric weighs about 1 ounce per square yard or 35 grams per square meter.

    The higher the momme, the heavier and denser the weave will be. During the process of silk production, the silk factory will adjust the density and yarn count of the silk thread to control the weight -- or momme -- of the fabric. With 30 momme charmeuse pillowcase, for example, the weft and warp of the silk fibers are woven closer together than they would

  7. Higher “Momme Weight”, Better Silk?

    Higher “Momme Weight”, Better Silk?

    We use thread count to measure the quality of cotton bedding, the higher the better. But when it comes to silk, Thread count becomes unimportant. We use “Momme weight“instead, usually referred as “mm” or “MM”. One momme = 4.340 grams per square meter;

    The typical momme weight range for a common silk types are:

    • Charmeuse Silk – 16 to 30 momme weight
    • Habutai silk – 5 to 16 momme weight
    • Raw silk – 35 to 40 momme weight
    • Chiffon – 6 to 8 momme weight
    • Gauze – 3 to 5 momme weight

    High momme weight means the silk fabric is more durable, feels thicker, more compact. Silk with higher momme weight is usually shinier and more lustrous due to a denser weave.

    When it comes to our seamless silk Charmeuse bed sheets, does it mean 22 momme weight is better than 19 momme weight , and 25 momme weight is better than 22 momme weight ? And do we have even higher mm silk sheets, like 30 mm, 35 mm?

  8. The Benefits of Silk for Hair and Skin

    The Benefits of Silk for Hair and Skin

    The pure mulberry silk sheets and pillowcases have wonderful benefits for skin, hair, and health. Along with being the ultimate in luxury, silk redefines the term "beauty sleep" for hair and skin as well as overall wellness:

    Silk tames "bed head." If you wake with a head full of tangles, it's likely due to friction from your cotton pillowcase. Silk pillowcases let your hair glide across their surface instead of snagging, no matter how much you toss and turn. You'll get a new morning look: smoother, silkier, and tangle-free. Silk also protects fragile or newly regrown hair from breakage.

    Silk keeps hair and skin moisturized. Cotton is absorbent and pulls moisture from hair and skin while you sleep. Silk is protein-based and helps hair and skin retain precious moisture.

    Silk minimizes "sleep wrinkles." Cotton pillowcases
