Allergies and Asthma

Silk Bedding Offers Hypoallergenic Sleep

You take care of your heart by exercising regularly. You take care of your health by eating right. But do you take care of your lungs? Did you know 1 out of 3 Americans are prone to some form of allergies? We spend 40% of our lives in bed and sleeping in cotton or linen increases the risk of allergies during sleep. Silk fiber, however, is naturally hypoallergenic and because of its unique texture dust cannot remain on silk, therefore reducing the risk of allergies and asthma. For the most hypoallergenic sleep, silk bedding offers a number of benefits over traditional bedding.

Beware of Cotton, Nylon, and Polyester! It is difficult to find organic fibers that do not contain chemicals or latex. Although cotton fiber is a natural cellulose agricultural fiber and is the predominant textile worldwide, the finished product may contain latex and chemicals that cause allergies and skin irritations. Nylon and Polyester DO NOT come from agricultural sources and contain chemicals that are harmful to your skin and health. Silk is an organic fiber and cannot be blended with any chemicals, therefore making it a perfect fit for your body.

Silk linens naturally maintain your body’s oil while you sleep, which helps reduce the risks of skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Its silky smooth texture softly wraps around your body creating the feeling of sleeping on clouds, while helping your skin stay naturally hydrated during sleep.

Pet lovers love snuggling with their darling pet, but we all know our furry little pals shed hair on your linens that may cause allergies and even asthma. While cotton and other fibers lock pet hair on your sheets, silk linen’s smooth natural texture prevents hair and bugs from latching on to the surface of your linens.
