MULLBERRY WEST SILK COMFORTER
For centuries those who’ve snuggled into a bed dressed with mulberry silk have appreciated and luxuriated in the comfort and protection of nature’s highest quality silk. Mulberry West bedding, specially crafted for our linens company based in the Pacific Northwest, is both hypoallergenic and long-lasting.
The Grade A mulberry long strand silk fibers are nestled in a bleach-free polished cotton cover, making for a barrier naturally resistant to mold, allergens and insects including bed bugs and dust mites. Our collection responds to temperature changes such as hormonal fluctuations by offering a natural veil of warmth or a cooling cover.
Our long strand silk floss is a mildew-proof natural fiber that eliminates moisture 1.5 times better than plain cotton. Mulberry West is certified by an international inspection company for no chlorine, ammonia, formaldehyde or lead.
MULBERRY SILK comes from the cocoons of silkworms that feed only on Mulberry leaves. The cocoon’s silk filaments are stretched into a flat web of silk floss which are stacked, then sealed inside our cotton fabric. The result is extremely lightweight despite the silk bedding’s thickness. Mulberry silk’s pearl-white hue reflects natural light while other silks, like Tussah and “wild silk” are a dull white caused by bleach and other chemicals.
NATURALLY HYPOALLERGENIC AND ANTI-BACTERIAL
1. Mulberry silk is clean and simple: a strand of fiber held together with the natural glue of the protein sericin.
2. Sericin is a natural repellent that is inhospitable to bed bugs and dust mites, a major source of allergens.
3. Mulberry silk is processed with little or no chemicals.
4. Mulberry silk maintains its structure for years, unlike duck and goose down which can degrade and fall apart; creating tiny pieces that can cause irritations.
COMFORTABLE SLEEP DURING MENOPAUSE
Our silk bedding eliminates the need to constantly throw off and on a covering. Mulberry silk is a porous, pure and natural fiber which adjusts to temperature fluctuations and is known for strong ventilation and moisture absorption. For women experiencing hot flashes and night sweats due to menopause, Mulberry West bedding is breathable and
adjusts to the body’s temperature while wicking away moisture.
REPELS MOLD AND MILDEW
Our silk bedding is a mildew-proof natural fiber that eliminates moisture 1.5 times better than plain cotton.
STRONGER THAN STEEL
Mulberry silk is stronger than steel wire with the same dimension. The more flexibility a silk has the better the quality. Mulberry silk has excellent elongations while inferior
silk has very poor flexibility and elastic recovery.
Grade A mulberry silk is odorless. Many silk comforters made with Tussah and “wild silk” have an oily or rotten smell.
Mulberry silk floss does not burn and any flame will immediately die off when the flame is removed. Burned silk leaves a brittle round black bead that crushes into a powdery ash.
EASY TO CLEAN
Caring for this bedding couldn’t be easier. Simply spot clean and air out in the sun for a few hours naturally bleaching the cotton and rejuvenating the mulberry silk. You may also dry clean with LOW heat. Do not machine wash or dry.
