Few things rival the luxury of silk, but silk bedding? The pinnacle of pampering. While many have hopped on the silk-pillowcase-for-better-skin-and-hair bandwagon, let's not overlook the full silk experience – from duvets to sheets, silk bedding is a whole new world of luxury. Silk's appeal isn't just about its lustrous appearance; it's backed by science.

A material often used in the best bedding sets, silk is also antibacterial and moisture-wicking, contributing to a more hygienic sleep environment while warding away itchiness. Certified Sleep Science Coach Carlie Gasia highlights the benefits of silk bedding, noting that it’s "naturally hypoallergenic, repelling dust, mites, and mold,” making it a “great choice for those prone to allergies." She adds, "Silk is temperature-regulating and breathable, providing a comfortable night's sleep regardless of the temperature," which is perfect for both hot and cold climates alike. 

If the science hasn't convinced you yet, perhaps the stunning silk bedding styles showcased below will pique your interest. It's time to elevate your experience of slumber — we've got silk in spades, and your sleep will thank you for it!

How should I care for my silk bedding?

Silk may be delicate, but with the right handling, it can last a lifetime.

Remember this golden rule: steer clear of the dryer! Gasia warns that heat spells disaster for silk, so air-drying is the way to go. Aside from this crucial tip, silk upkeep is a breeze. Wash your bedding at a “lower temperature of 30° with a mild, non-biological detergent,” making a concerted effort to avoid “harsh chemicals like bleach or fabric softener.”

With these simple care instructions, your silk bedding will remain in pristine condition — even after years of usage — so there's no excuse not to indulge!
