FAQs & Care

WHY SHOULD I INVEST IN A LIELLA SILK PILLOWCASE? 

ANTI-AGEING & ANTI-WRINKLE:
As you age, your body produces less collagen, leading to dry skin and the formation of wrinkles. 
Silk is natural protein fibre that is enriched with amino acids that help your skin promote the development of collagen. Therefore, the collagen plays a role in strengthening your skin, benefiting your skins elasticity and hydration. Silk also provides 43% less friction on average compared to cotton, which can reduce stretching and tugging on delicate facial skin, preventing wrinkles from occurring. 
HYPOALLERGENIC:
Cotton pillowcases are known for collecting moisture, causing the pillowcase to also draw in its allergens and bacteria. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic due to silk fibres being coated with a protein known as Sericin. Sericin repels dust mites, which are a major source of allergic irritation. Sericin also makes silk resistant to mold, fungus, and bacteria due to its moisture wicking formation. Whereas, regular cotton or polyester pillowcases often grow this bacteria, or are a "breeding ground" for dust mites.
ASSISTING ACNE & DRY SKIN CONCERNS:
Sleeping on silk will keep your skin hydrated, and can assist those who struggle with acne or skin concerns.
Have you ever woken up from a cotton pillowcase with dry skin or sleep creases? This is due to the cotton fabric sucking moisture right up into its fibres, along with your night time skin care routine! This then leaves your skin feeling dry and tight in the morning.
ANTI-FRIZZ & HAIR DAMAGE:
Silk is an anti-friction, super smooth texture, allowing your hair to simply glide over it. This results in waking up to less tangles, frizzy hair, or "bedhead", and instead leaving your hair feeling smoother, hydrated and frizz-free! Cotton however can often snag hair, messing it up into a nest of tangles overnight, often leading to hair damage and broken ends.

WHAT DOES THE  'OEKO-TEX' TAG MEAN ON MY PILLOWCASE?

The tag attached to your pillowcase stating, STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety, ensuring to all of our customers your silk pillowcase is harmless to your health. 

HOW DO I WASH/ CARE FOR MY PILLOW CASE?

Turn your pillowcase inside out when washing. Hand wash (or machine wash on a delicate cycle) your silk in cooler water such as the recommended 30°C. Use a ph neutral detergent and/or a fabric softener (better yet, shampoo and conditioner). Do not bleach. Soak for no longer than an hour. Blot pillowcase dry with an absorbent towel. Do not wring dry. Do not put in dryer. Do not dry in direct sunlight. 

It is recommended that we wash our pillowcases every 2 weeks.

To iron, turn inside out and place iron on the silk setting. Iron your pillowcase on the lowest possible setting. 

 

 WHAT DOES 6A, 22 MOMME AND 100% MULBERRY MEAN?

6A MEANING:

This is simply informing you on the type of quality silk your recieving.
Silk is graded on a scale of A, B or C. A being the highest quality, and C being the lowest. The number prior to the lettering is also another way of showing you the quality, for example, 6A being the highest, 5A being a step down, and so on.
So when you read "6A" in reference to a silk product, such as our pillowcases, you can be sure to know it is in fact the highest grade of silk achievable.

22 MOMME:

Momme is the measurement of silk weight and density. Similar to thread count, the higher the momme, the thicker and more durable. Momme ranges from 11-25, so why do we not use 25 momme? The reasoning is 22 momme is seen as the perfect balance of thickness. 25 momme is often used for curtains due to it being more dense, whereas for silk clothing and bedding, it is recommended to use a softer and more delicate quality. 

100% MULBERRY:

Silk comes from silkworms. The silk worms feed on mulberry leaves which they then produce the best silk for textile purposes such as pillowcases. There is no other type of silk blended in with the mulberry, unlike some companies whom have a mixture of a cheaper silk and mulberry to therefore make a cheaper product. Hence the statement of our 100% pure mulberry silk.
