ALL LUXURY RANGE SILK DUVETS ARE HAND-SEWN

Long-strand mulberry silk-filled duvets from Silk Bedding Direct

All Silk Bedding Direct Luxury Range silk duvets are filled with hypoallergenic top grade long-strand 100% natural mulberry silk.  Hand stretched into the duvet casing the silk is then loop sewn and tied by hand through the casing to prevent movement.  Hand loop sewing is used to avoid crushing the precious silk inside and stop much needed insulating layers of air being expelled.  It is a much superior method to machine "pattern" sewing and the result is a more comfortable, luxurious and higher quality silk duvet.

Most mulberry silk-filled duvets on the market today cannot be produced in this way because the quality of the silk used is not sufficiently high. In order for hand loop sewing to be possible only the best long-strand mulberry silk can be used. Of course it is also cheaper to machine sew so this is the method most other suppliers use.

Besides the superior quality of the mulberry silk itself, thermal insulating properties created by air being enclosed between the fine silk threads is one of the reasons that Silk Bedding Direct's mulberry silk-filled duvets are so light and comfortable, and so effective in regulating sleeping temperature.

 

Silk Bedding Direct's Luxury Mulberry Silk-Filled Duvets Have Many Other Great Benefits Too...

Silk duvets are very comfortable 1. Most comfortable, by far! - Silk Bedding Direct Luxury Range long-strand mulberry silk-filled duvets are the ultimate in bedtime comfort!  They are lightweight, wrap around your body like no other bedding and are amazingly luxurious and comfortable.  Once you have slept under a Silk Bedding Direct mulberry silk-filled duvet you won't want to revert to any other type of bedding.  People are very pleasantly surprised at just how much more comfortable they are compared to other luxury duvets and more traditional types of bedding.

2. 100% natural - the silk duvet's interior is absolutely top quality long-strand mulberry silk and is a 100% totally natural product.  Long-strand mulberry silk is universally accepted to be the very best quality in the world, and Silk Bedding Direct select the best of the best for our Luxury Range.  The mulberry silk is used in its natural state - no chemicals or anything else is added or used in the production process.  Bedding made from the inferior tussah silk (which cannot be used to produce hypoallergenic duvets), down, feathers, and wool need to be chemically treated before use.

3. Self regulates temperature - long-strand mulberry silk-filled duvets from Silk Bedding Direct keep you comfortable over a wider range of temperature compared to other forms of bedding.  The silk breathes and allows both excess heat and moisture to escape if you become too hot in bed (so no more sweaty nights) but retains heat on colder nights to keep you snug and warm.  Air encased between the layers of fine silk threads also help act as thermal regulators to keep you just at the right sleeping temperature.  Even two people who sleep in the same bed and have different comfort levels as regards warmth have their individual temperatures self regulated!

4. Totally clean! - all other types of bedding contain thousands or even millions of dust mites, mold, fungus and other microscopic life (and their droppings!).  These cannot live in 100% natural and pure long-strand mulberry silk.

5. Helps delay skin aging - mulberry silk contains several amino acids which actively delays skin aging, rejuvenating you throughout the night and helping to keep you looking young.

6. Protects skin from further damage - a natural part of mulberry silk is the protein sericin which leaves a protective barrier on skin helping prevent further damage.

7. Nourishes and protects the hair - in the same way that the skin is nourished and protected the amino acids and the protein sericin nourish and protect your hair too.

8. Promotes relaxation in the central nervous system - mulberry silk has natural properties that promote relaxation in the central nervous system.  It's therefore totally ideal for use as bedding as it aids restful sleep.  This also makes mulberry silk duvets (sometimes called silk quilts) ideal for anyone with any degree of insomnia too.

9. Natural drape - meaning that it drapes snugly around you.  It is therefore much more efficient in keeping you comfortable and snug and the drag of the bedding is less likely to awaken you when changing sleeping position during the night.

Mulberry silk fills the interior of the duvet10. Hand stretched - the long-strand mulberry silk filling is stretched and prepared for the duvet by hand to ensure it has an even distribution within the casing.  This is a far superior method compared to machine stretching and preparation, and is important to ensure an even warmth.

11. Hand sewn - the mulberry silk interior is then loop-sewn by hand and tied through the casing.  This ensures that the silk cannot bunch up or move about within the casing and maintains an even warmth for the life of the duvet.  Hand sewing is important to maintain the necessary volume of air within the silk.  Machine sewing eliminates the air where it is sewn and also damages the silk by crushing it, thereby eliminating much of the silk duvet's natural insulating properties.

It is not possible to hand loop sew most mulberry silk duvets because the quality of the silk is not high enough – only the best long-strand mulberry silk can be used to produce luxury mulberry silk-filled duvets that are finished in this way.

12. Very little cleaning required - under normal circumstances cleaning your silk duvet will almost never be required.  If necessary a mild detergent can be used to spot clean. Over a long period of time, if it becomes a little flatter from usage, simply air outside preferably on a sunny day. Even after years of usage this should return your luxury duvet to a nearly new condition.

It is very important to avoid machine washing as this will harm the duvet. Silk duvets that can be machine washed have been chemically treated to make this possible. The chemical treatment destroys many of the great natural properties of the silk too. At Silk Bedding Direct you can be sure of the best quality 100% pure and natural mulberry silk.  

13. Hypoallergenic - meaning people with allergies and asthma are not irritated by mulberry silk.  This is good for people without allergies too because it means it is soothing to the body.  The absence of dust mites and bed bugs makes hypoallergenic long-strand mulberry silk-filled duvets excellent for asthma suffers too. Duvets with a 100% mulberry silk interior such as these are the most luxurious hypoallergenic duvets available and are a 100% natural bedding.

14. All season duvets - Silk Bedding Direct's mulberry silk duvets can be used all year round.  By buying a Summer and a Spring/Autumn silk duvet you actually have 3 duvet thicknesses as the Summer and Spring/Autumn clip together to make a super snug Winter thickness duvet.  Its like you get 3 duvets for the price of 2!  All SBD silk duvets are complete with our "Easy Clip" clips - these are small unobtrusive and durable clips, very easy to use and unlike button and hook will not fall off after years of use.  Another example of our attention to detail and absolute best practice.

15. Longer life - Silk Bedding Direct mulberry silk-filled duvets have a longer life than other forms of luxury duvets and other luxury bedding and do not fall apart and degrade over time like down bedding.

16. Hand-finishing - As described above all our Luxury Range silk duvets are finished with care by hand in order to produce the perfect silk-filled duvet.  We ask you to be wary of other suppliers' claims of "handmade silk-filled duvets" as at the very least the material for the casing (whatever material is used) is always machine made whatever claims to the contrary are made.

17. OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Certified - All bedding purchased from Silk Bedding Direct is OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Certified and has the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 'Confidence in Textiles' label attached.

OEKO-TEX is a global standardised quality assurance system for textiles based in Zurich. It was established by the Hohenstein Institute and the Institute for Ecology, Technology and Innovation in Vienna and is recognised within the textile industry as being the world-wide leading authority.

18. Money-back Guarantee - The above points are all true and correct and we are highly confident you will love your luxury silk duvet.  In the highly unusual situation that you are dissatisfied in any way you can within 14 days of receiving your duvet use our "no questions asked" full money back guarantee - we will even pay the return delivery fee, you are totally covered. We're sure you'll love your luxury long-strand mulberry silk-filled duvet.

What Exactly is a Silk-Filled Duvet?

Silk Bedding Direct's luxury long-strand mulberry silk-filled duvets consist of an inner part which provides the warmth (this is 100% pure top quality long-strand mulberry silk), and an outer casing that holds the duvet together (a luxurious and durable 300 thread count cotton sateen).

The terms “duvet” and “comforter” mean the same. “Duvet” is generally used in UK / continental Europe and both “duvet” and “comforter” in America, and "doona" in Australia and New Zealand.  We use the term duvet as it seems to be more commonly understood around the world.
 
Luxury Range Mulberry Silk-Filled Duvets at Silk Bedding Direct
Mulberry silk cocoonsThe silk interior is top quality 100% natural long-strand mulberry silk and nothing else.  Mulberry silk means that the silkworms that make the silk cocoons have been fed on a diet of 100% mulberry leaves.

It is universally accepted that moths fed on mulberry leaves produce the very best silk possible, and can produce silk cocoons containing very long strands of silk (individual silk strands within our duvets can be up to half a mile / 800 metres long!).  Top grade long-strand mulberry silk is very soft to the touch and besides being hypoallergenic has excellent insulation properties, ideal for making these wonderfully comfortable and soothing luxury silk duvets.

Please note that we NEVER use tussah silk - produced by wild moths that eat whatever they come across tussah silk is an inferior product which needs to be chemically treated before use thereby losing many of the great benefits of silk-filled duvets.

All our Luxury Range silk-filled duvets are complete with a high quality 300 thread count cotton sateen casing.  Although it is possible to use silk for the outer casing this is not recommended as it can tear more easily than cotton sateen.  This means it would shorten the life of the duvet while considerably adding to the cost.  Using a silk inner / cotton sateen outer combination means you can enjoy the perfect night's sleep for many years to come. The goodness and beneficial properties of the long-strand mulberry silk easily seep through the cotton sateen casing.
 
Silk Duvet Sizes
Silk Bedding Direct Luxury Range mulberry long-strand silk-filled duvets are available in these sizes - cot bed duvets, single duvets, Euro single duvets, double duvets, king size duvets, continental queen duvets, and super king size duvets.

Each silk duvet size is available in 3 thicknesses as all season combination duvets; Light Fill (Summer) and Medium Fill (Spring / Autumn) and all-season Combination Deep Fill (Winter) which is a Light and Medium Fill together secured with our “Easy Clip” clip together system that comes as standard on all our duvets.

The Deep Fill combination clip together (all-season) duvet (2 duvets) has the advantage that at any time of year you can choose from three duvet thicknesses, yet you only need purchase two duvets.

This is because you can clip together the 2 duvets, creating an extra snug and warm Winter thickness duvet.
 

With 100% natural top quality long-strand mulberry silk interior and finished by hand to allow the right amount of air to remain inside, Silk Bedding Direct Luxury Range silk duvets self regulate temperature and are comfortable over a much wider temperature band than other types of bedding.  May you sleep well....
