Silk comforters are not as popular as down comforters, but have many properties that make them an excellent choice in bedding. Some retailers say they are as warm as they are, which is not true. Although they are extremely good insulators, down is the king of weight to warmth ration in down bedding as well as clothing. But there is no need to exaggerate the quality of silk comforters. It has more than enough positive points to qualify it as one of the most luxurious items you can have in your home.

Silk bedding were first invented in China, but now they are becoming one of the most popular luxury items. Silk bedding include sheets, pillowcases, blankets and silk comforters. The material for the silk coating is preferably a charmeuse or habotai. Silk comforters are covered with charmeuse, habotai, or cotton, and they are filled with silk floss.

Silk floss looks like a cotton swab, which is stretched out and flattened, but the individual fibers are very long. The extremely long fiber length is the main quality that makes silk fabric so smooth. Silk floss is available in many varieties, including mulberry, where silk worms feed on a diet of pure mulberry leaves and a silk floss bundle, which comes from the silkworms that feed on wildlife.


Silk Production

The production of cultivated silk is known as silkworm. There are several production steps that begin with a silk butterfly that laying its eggs. After hatching, the caterpillars begin to feed the mulberry leaves, increasing 10,000 times during the 35th day of their life, when they are ready to spin silk cocoons.

The silk worm produces silk in a pair of glands in its head, and then pushes itself as a liquid through small holes called spinnerets. Silk liquid turns into fiber as soon as it comes in contact with air. A typical silk worm can produce about 1 mile of silk in 2-3 days, turning into a cocoon.

As soon as the silk worm turns into a moth, it releases the liquid onto the silk threads to dissolve them so that they can emerge. But when producing pure silk from mulberry, most worms die from the heat before they change. Some of them can survive to continue breeding.

The cocoons are cleaned to find the end of the silk filament, and then the silk is rolled up. One cocoon contains about 1000 yards of silk filament. This is called raw silk. Several threads are combined in 1 yarn.
