Know Your Bedding Material ~ Silk


Silk is luxurious, soft fibre produced from silk worms. The three main varieties are the Wild Silk {harvested from wild silk worms}, the Tussah Silk from the east {with a deep tone to it} and the 100% Mulberry Silk {which is the "Rolls Royce" of silks}. They create a silky, cool alternative for warm days and romantic nights. Because it is naturally hypo-allergenic, it is an alternative for people who suffer from allergies.
