Silk Pillow: Frequently asked questions

What types of Silk Pillow are there and what determines a good product?

There are two types of Silk Pillows. The first is a pillow that has silk inside the cover, and the second type is one where there’s an actual piece of silk sewn into it. Both have their benefits, but we prefer to use real pieces because they last longer than just stuffing them with fabric or threading them through like some other brands do.

The quality of a silk pillow is determined by the material and craftsmanship. A good Silk Pillow should be made with 100% Mulberry silk, which has been hand-woven in China using traditional techniques that have been passed down through generations for over 2,000 years. It also needs to be filled with high-quality mulberry fiber filling (not cotton) so it will stay cool throughout the night and conform to your head without flattening out or getting lumpy like other pillows do after just one use. Finally, you need an expert seamstress who knows how to sew on a machine as well as by hand because this ensures each stitch is perfect – no loose threads or crooked seams allowed.

Who should use a Silk Pillow?

Anyone who wants to improve their sleep. If you are a side sleeper, or if your head and neck feel sore after sleeping on it, then the Silk Pillow is for you. It's also great for people with allergies because of its hypoallergenic properties.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Silk Pillow?

Quality, price and store are the three most important criteria when it comes to buying a Silk Pillow. However, you can also consider shipping speed as well as customer service.

There are many factors you should consider when comparing Silk Pillow. For example, there is a big difference in terms of quality depending on whether the product comes from a reputable brand or not. You also need to check out if the item has an affordable price tag and what kind of materials it’s made from. If you want to get something that will serve your needs for years, then make sure its durable as well as easy to maintain (i.e., cleaning).

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Silk Pillow?


Silk Pillows are hypoallergenic, which means they can be used by people with allergies to dust mites and other allergens. They also have a very soft texture that is great for those who suffer from headaches or migraines. Because of their natural properties silk pillows do not retain heat like synthetic materials tend to do, so you will sleep cooler at night. The best part about these amazing pillows? You won’t wake up with the dreaded “pillow head” in the morning because your hair has been flattened all night long.


Silk pillows are not the best choice for people who suffer from allergies. They can also be a bit expensive, but they will last you longer than other types of pillowcases.
