What is 22-Momme, 6A, 100% Mulberry Silk?
What is 100% Mulberry Silk?
Mulberry Silk is a 100% natural protein fiber that is spun from silkworms called Bombyx mori moth; these silkworms are only fed mulberry leaves to ensure the highest quality of silk yield. Mulberry Silk is undoubtedly the best silk you can buy in the manufacture of textile and luxury silk products. It is both incredibly soft and very durable, making it a wise product purchase.
Mulberry silk is 100% natural, meaning the fabric only contains Mulberry silk and there are no nasty synthetics added. This is important as some companies blend mulberry silk with other cheaper silks to make a more inferior product, so make sure you check that it states 100% natural!
If you are currently in the market for silk products, 22-momme, 6A, is going to be your best bet! So, if you’re in the market for a silk pillowcase…then Blackdog NZ’s pillow slips are what you are looking for. They are beautifully made from 6A, 22-Momme 100% Mulberry Silk, providing you incredible benefits for your hair, skin, quality of sleep, and not to mention the potential reduction in allergy symptoms.
What does 6A mean?
In brief, silk is classified or graded by scales A, B, and C with each letter referring to a different silk quality. The A classification is identified as the finest longs-strand, quality silk product, and C being the lowest. The category is further graded by adding a number 1-6 allowing the grading to be taken a step further. 6A is the ultimate quality of a specific type of silk available for purchase.
What is 22-Momme?
Momme [mom-ee], often abbreviated to mm is the Japanese word used for a unit of weight measurement for real silk, much like a Cotton has a thread count.. Unlike Cotton, silk is measured in weight and density as its fibers are much too fine to count easily. A high momme signifies a heavier, denser, and more durable weave of higher quality fabric, for example, one momme calculates to approximately 4.340 grams per square meter, eight momme fabric weighs about 35 grams per square meter.
Momme can range anywhere from 11 to 25-momme and in this case the higher, the better! 11 momme is considered “lower quality” while 25 Momme is much too heavy for garments or bedding and is usually suited for textiles like curtains. 19 Momme is ideal for Mulberry Silk Sleep Masks, with the 22 Momme is a perfect balance for pillowcases and is what you should look for if you’re looking for the ideal combination.
Gently hand washes silk with a little mild shampoo/Soap in cool water. Do bleach or use fabric softener. Do not scrub or twist. Gently squeeze out most of the water and air dry by placing on a towel on a flat surface. To make it last, keep out of washing machines, hot water, direct sunlight.
