These silk pillowcases are beautiful to look at, wonderfully soft and smooth against your skin and reduce bed head and split ends. Dermatologists and hairdressers recommend silk pillowcases for their beneficial properties. Unlike the short fibres of cotton, each silk thread is made up of many filaments up to 800 metres long. This produces a fabric that is perfectly smooth and does not cause friction on the skin. Silk is also anti-allergenic so very beneficial for anyone who suffers from dust allergies.
The trim on these pillowcases is broderie anglaise, giving the pillowcases a vintage cottage appearance. The back is made of Egyptian cotton; this is to stop the pillowcase slipping on the bed. However they can be made completely of silk – please contact me for further details.
There is not an inner flap on these, instead they tie with ribbon, which adds to the vintage feel. All seams are enclosed so there is no chance of fraying.
Silk is a remarkably strong and durable fabric although it does need care when washing. I wash mine using a washing powder specifically for delicates and on a wool/silk wash. They should be dried without heat and ironed using a medium iron.
Once you have tried silk pillowcases, you will be hooked! I even take mine on holiday with me. They make lovely Mothers Day, wedding or birthday presents and can be gift wrapped for no extra charge. The box in picture 4 is listed in my shop as an extra, but is only £1.00.
Payment should be made with order via paypal. For international postage charges, please contact me by email.
Items will be shipped within 2 days of receiving payment except when there is a holiday announcement. I will use first class or airmail postage so depending on your location, you shouldn't have to wait more than 10 days for international postage or 3 days for UK postage.
I am happy to refund items if there is a fault but would be grateful if you will email to let me know that there is a problem. I ensure that all goods are as perfect as a handmade item can be. I am happy to insure items over £50.00 if requested to do so, but cannot take responsibility for items lost in the post.
Some items will be made to order and can be ordered in different colourways and sizes. Please contact me for further information.
I will be away until 25th August. This means that shipment will be within 5 days of this date.
