Deep Insights Into Silk Mommes

Momme is a weight and quality measurement standard of silk in a fabric. 

The Momme number is a numerical value used to quantify the fineness of silk. It also measures durability of silk, where higher numbers mean higher quality. It describes the strength, softness, and ability to withstand wear and tear of silk fabrics.

  • 19mm=19lbs 100 yards of silk
  • 22mm=22lbs 100 yards of silk
  • 23mm=23lbs 100 yards of silk
  • 25mm=25lbs 100 yards of silk

What Momme is best for silk pillowcases and bedding?

The best pillowcases for silkare those with a thickness of at least 19mm. The pillowcase must be firm enough to hold its shape but soft enough to allow your hands to glide over it. It should also be strong enough to withstand repeated washing without shrinking or losing shape to maintain its aesthetic appearance.

A thread count of  22-25mm  for bedding(the average thickness of silk) will withstand body weight and tossing. The higher the thread count, the softer and more comfortable your bedding will be.
