Silk is a natural fibre produced by many insects and arachnids all over the world.  Most of this silk is not suitable for anything except what nature intended. Silk from silk moths, however, has been utilized by man for thousands of years.

There are many varieties of silk moth, each with an identical life cycle.  The moth lays the eggs, which hatch into larvae (commonly called silkworms) which feed and grow large enough to pupate.  It makes its pupa by spinning a silk thread around itself. This pupa is called a cocoon.

Some silk is produced from wild silk moths which eat anything they come across and so produce silk that needs to be washed and chemically treated before it can be used, thus destroying the sericin and amino acids contained in the silk that are so good for us.  



Mulberry silk-filled duvet enjoyed by a young woman

When considering buying a silk duvet it is important to know what you are getting. Some silk duvets are made from tussah (wild silk) or scraps of silk offcuts combined with polyester.  These are cheaper, of course, but they are certainly not the best.  The very best silk duvets are made from the silk produced by cultivated silkworms, which are bred in captivity and fed entirely on mulberry leaves.  This is a long and very skilled process and produces a very fine silk, the strands of which can be up to a kilometre long.

It is also important to know how your mulberry silk duvet was constructed.  Some manufacturers cut corners to make the procedure quicker, but in so doing they damage the thermal properties of the silk. It is important that the silk in your silk duvet is stretched by hand to finish, not by machine.  Machine stretching to finish can leave clumps of silk, whilst hand stretching ensures an even distribution of the silk.  It is also important that the silk in your duvet, sometimes known as a silk quilt, is sewn to the casing by hand as machine sewing flattens the silk and damages its thermal qualities. The very best duvets will also have an inspection zip which allows you to see and feel the silk inside.

Long strand mulberry silk is the best silk in production.  When made into a duvet you will have the best that money can buy. It is so pure that nothing can live in it. It is completely hypoallergenic.  It is free from bed bugs, dust mites and anything else that may cause irritation in the lungs.  Also, the seracin and amino acids contained in the silk help to prevent ageing and are good for skin and hair.
