Many of us associate the arrival of cold weather with the need for warm, woolly fabrics and plenty of heat. Why should you have to sleep with icy ears and toes? Why not sleep beneath layers of thick bedding made of fleece, cotton, or another woolly winter fabric?
Your body may feel warm from carrying so much weight, but sleeping in a warm environment will make you hotter and make it more likely that you'll wake up in a sweaty mess. Have you ever awoken with a dripping wet head? Not a good look for bedtime.
The misconception that winter requires "winter" fabrics is not only incorrect; it is also the worst thing you can do for your sleep and skin. Spending the night in an overly hot environment will cause your skin to become dry and cracked. So why sleep against fabrics that will only raise your body temperature and wick away all of your moisture? Silk bedding will keep your skin cool and hydrated, allowing you to look your best in the winter.
Silk Is an All-Weather Fabric
Silk is known for its smoothness and coolness to the touch, making it one of the most luxurious fabrics against the skin. However, just because silk feels cool doesn't mean it's only good for keeping you cool. Did you know that this fabric has natural temperature regulating properties that work all year?
Silk creates an insulating layer of warm air against your skin, keeping you warm even as the temperature outside begins to drop. Furthermore, silk has excellent moisture wicking properties, absorbing up to 30% of its own weight in water. This means you'll never have to worry about your silk pillowcase becoming damp or sticky.
Also, silk is a natural fiber that is highly breathable, allowing air to escape when you become overheated. Silk's natural temperature regulating properties make it the ideal choice for staying cool in the summer and warm in the winter. When you sleep without sweating, your skin looks refreshed and ready for the day
