    5 Reasons to Invest in High Quality Silk Bedding

    With all the different options out there these days, it can be a bit overwhelming to make the best choice for your bedding needs. Here we will explore some of the reasons why you might want to invest in silk bedding over other fine fabrics. We could come up with a hundred reasons but broke it down to 5 main points.

    1) Silk is a natural fabric. All of our Manito silk is chemical free. Why is this important? Since we spend up to half our lives in bed, we want to make sure that we choose a fabric to sleep on that will allow our skin to breathe. This will optimize the body's ability to rejuvenate itself during sleep. It also means no night sweats or complications that might arise from allergies to synthetic or down bedding. Silk is hypo-allergenic. We have had some people report that they stopped getting migraine headaches after they slept on our silk filled pillows!

    2) Has your town had an outbreak of bedbugs or mites? Have no fear, silk repels mites, bedbugs and any other creepy crawlies that might want to make their way into your bed. Silk is a very strong fabric and with it's repellent qualities that means you don't have to wash it as often as other fabrics if you don't need to. That will ensure that your silk sheets last for many years to come.

    3) Silk is a regulator of body temperature. That means it can keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It does double duty.

    4) If you want the softest skin & hair, silk also has beneficial effects on both. Stylists recommend silk pillowcases to their clients to help them keep their hair lush, healthy and strong. It is the perfect fabric for the delicate facial skin as it can aid with absorption of your night creams and prevent "pillowface" that over time can lead to fine lines & wrinkles.

    5) Silk feels amazing. Soft silkiness that makes you dream all day about returning to your bed. That alone makes it a fabulous investment for your home, the other many health and beauty benefits are an added bonus!
