How do you measure thread counts of silk?
Thread count is a quality measuring standard for cotton, not silk. Silk quality is measured by it’s weight, and momme is the traditional density unit for silk. The higher the momme number, the heavier and better quality the silk. Most in the market are between 10 to 16 momme, but ours is 22 momme, the best weight for durable pillowcases. If you take proper care of your pure silk pillowcase it can last for years.
Is silk easy to care for?
Surprisingly, it is easier than most people think. Place your LOVESILK pillowcase in the washing machine, we recommend using our LOVESILK washing bag for extra protection, with a mild detergent in the form of liquid detergents, put on a delicate cycle, tumble dry using the dryer's low temperature delicate cycle with fabric softener and it will turn out soft and nice. If you air dry the item you might need to iron it with low heat to restore it’s shine and softness. The water temperature mustn't exceed 30 degree celsius .
