Why do we not count wires by side
For many textiles like cotton, the number of wires used says something about the quality of the fabric. For silk bedding we do not talk about the number of threads, but about the weight of the mass. Because by side it is not so much about the number of wires used in weaving, but for the weight of the used side per stretching meter (similar to denier at nylons)
Why do not we use thread counting if we have it over?
The main reason is that it says nothing about quality because silk is made of ragfine threads. The numbers would always be extremely high regardless of the quality of the side. Low-grade silk can consist essentially of as many threads as high-grade silk but still show a high degree of quality. That’s why we use the momme weight by side.
What is momme weight?
The mommy weight says something about the weight of silk. To be exact, the number of mums indicates the weight of 100 yards (about 91 meters), 45 inches (about 1 m wide), in pounds. So, if a substance has a mum weight of 8mm, it means that 100 yard of this substance weighs 8 pounds. This quality silk is common with silk dresses and other silk clothing. High quality silk has a mum weight of 14, 15 or 16 mm. Most LovaSilk bedding has a mum weight of 19mm which corresponds to about 80 grams / m2. At a molecular weight of 22, that is about 100 grams / m2.
What is the quality range of momme weight?
The weight of the silk is somewhere between 6 and 30 mommes. For bed linens, the 19 weight-weight side is the most common because it has the right balance between strength, appearance and affordability. The higher the mommegetal, the more expensive the side, but also the more durable.
What if there is no momme weight on a side product?
When you buy a side-case without weight, you can look further. Because without this quality indication you do not know what you are buying.
Does the weight of momme affect the transparency of silk?
It is logical that the heavier the side, the less translucent it is. Also painted silk is less translucent than uncoloured silk. By nature, silk is a semi transparent fabric. So choose for painted side, this is less transparent. White silk is still sold as bedding because it looks so chic. White is also easy to combine with different interiors and bed colors.
Better sleep with silk pillowcases and side mask
Different factors determine your night’s rest. Temperature, sufficient oxygen and low light are the most important ones that you can easily influence. Sleeping is best with an open window, but what if it’s out of blood? A silk cushion cover and a silk mask ensure undisturbed sleep.

And the side keeps your skin at the right temperature, not too hot, but not too cold.
Signs of restless sleep
A bumpy bush and a crumbled face on the wake indicate restless sleep. Usually you will not really be woken up when you’ve been sleeping all night long. A silk pillow case makes you sleep better.

Keep it dark with a silk mask
