The newly released report begins with an overview of the reputations of silk and cotton. It then offers a comparative infographic making clear the superiority of silk in several categories. For instance, as regards the category “Skin”, readers learn that while cotton dehydrates, pulls, and can cause allergies, silk is non-irritating and hypoallergenic, maintains natural moisture, and prevents sleep creases.

With the newly released report, readers learn of the highly sustainable, eco-friendly nature of silk. They are informed that no pesticides, fungicides, insecticides, or herbicides are used in the production process and that the consumption of silkworms in Asia, where silk is made, leads to a fully circular economy. More than 814 times less carbon is emitted in silk production than in cotton production.
Silk is an ancient and cherished material and is the strongest natural fibre in the world. While its reputation for elegance and comfort in garments is considerable, some do not regard it as the ideal sleeping material due to beliefs that it is too delicate, slippery, hot, and difficult to handwash. By contrast, cotton sheets enjoy great popularity because of their reputation for being cool and refreshing.
Many are beginning to realise that mulberry silk sheets provide many advantages over cotton when searching for a comfortable night’s sleep. For example, the report informs readers that silk, unlike cotton, acts as a natural insulator, allowing it to function in service of the sleeper’s optimal comfort in diverse conditions. During hot, uncomfortable summer nights, it feels light and cool, and also keeps one warm when the weather is cold outside.
In order to further the reader’s understanding of materials, the report illustrates the differences between silk and satin, which are often mistakenly used interchangeably.
