Pair of Mulberry silk charmeuse pillowcases with pale lemon broderie anglaise trim
Silk pillowcases are beautiful to sleep on and once you've tried them you won't want to go back to cotton or polyester.
Silk is a wonderful fabric being smooth and light. It is remarkably hard wearing when cared for properly and you will get years of wear from these pillowcases. Cotton pillowcases tend to wick moisture from the skin and also create friction for the hair which can then lead to 'bedhead' and split ends. Not so with silk! As soon as you lay your face on these pillowcases you will feel the luxurious smoothness. Why pay a fortune for face creams if you are going to spoil the effects with a cotton pillowcase?
The front of these pillowcases is made from mulberry charmeuse silk. They are 19momme, so a very fine quality of silk. The back is made from white Egyptian cotton. The pillowcases close with ribbon ties see picture# 4. All seams are French seams, which means that there are no raw edges so no fraying will occur. They measure 20" x 30" (approx 50 x 72 cms)
Silk can be machine washed on a silk/wool cycle and using a gentle detergent such as Woolite or Ecover for delicates. It should NEVER be tumble dried or wrung as this will distort the fibres of the silk. Full washing instructions are included in the packaging.
If you would like a sample of the silk, or have any questions, please convo me.
These pillowcases can also be made with silk both front and back, or with any colour combination you would like. Please convo me for details
