Silk used in SilkLady pillowcases comes from the moth Bombyx Mori, which produces the finest and purest silk. It is fed only chopped mulberry leaves and lives in an area free of pollution for 3 kilometers. SilkLady silk is strictly chemical-free, from the raw material, through the entire production process.
To get the highest quality, many different silks were tested. Eventually a unique formulation, free of chemicals was settled on. The result is an incredibly smooth and soft fabric, which is 100% free of any artificial softeners, bleaches and dyes. SilkLady finish off their silk pillowcases with traditional French seams, sewn by professional seamstresses to ensure cases do not fray.
This is a luxury product of exceptional quality, not a mass-produced item. SilkLady pillowcases are stunning to look at, blissful to sleep on and will make a worthy, long-term contribution to your skincare regime. SilkLady is a proudly South African company - their silk is exclusively imported and locally manufactured and packaged.
Momme weight is the way silk quality is measured, as silk is so fine that thread count is not a good way to judge. Momme measures the weight of 100 yards of silk that is 45 inches wide. Momme weight can vary from 6 up to 30 and silk with a momme of 19 is considered the best for bedding as it provides the best balance of strength and aesthetics.
Available in three sizes:
- Travel - 30cm x 40cm
- Standard - 45cm x 70cm
- King - 50cm x 90cm
- Prevents facial skin from creasing
- Maintains hydration
- Keeps your skin-care product on your skin
- Eliminates sleep wrinkles
- Prevents hair from frizzing and split ends
- Reduces the loss of natural hair oils and moisture
- Minimizes damage to thinning of hair
- Naturally hypoallergenic
- Repels dust-mites
- Always take off your make-up and mascara before you go to bed. Not only would your skin benefit by being able to breath, rest and recover, but your white silk pillowcase would not stain. Do not bleach.
- For best results, hand wash your pillowcase inside out in a normal temperature of cold water, using a mild neutral detergent.
- Most modern washing machines have a gentle silk or wool cycle, so you can confidently wash it at 30°C. Place the pillowcase in a laundry bag before placing it in the washing machine. Wash separately from colours.
- Avoid tumble-drying and direct sunlight. When 80-90% dry, iron inside out using a low or silk setting.
- Do not use cotton cycle on your washing machine at 40°C. This will cause the loss of softness.
- When rinsing, add a small spoon of vinegar, it will prevent the silk from stiffening, and it will keep it soft and bright in colour.

We can easily skip a day between brushing with minimal knotting. Definitely seems to cause less friction in her curls.21/11/2018, By KatThe pillow case is amazing, Heavenly against your skin...01/11/2018, By NandiYou should not be supporting this. These worms get boiled alive inside their cocoons in order for the workers to obtain the silk threads. About 6600 worms are killed to produce just 1kg of silk.29/10/2018, By LishhaThe feel of this pillowcase is great!25/10/2018, By GilGood buy25/08/2018, By Heatherfeels divine, pity it creases so much! helps with static in my hair, still early days to judge if there is any difference with my skin, holding thumbs .....24/08/2018, By AllisonI bought this to test out the “loss” of skin care products at night to a cotton pillow slip. This makes a huge difference - you still able to feel your skincare products on your skin after snuggling into your pillow. This is also a good price compared to others seen on the market.16/08/2018, By JaneI love this silk pillow case.

Planning on purchasing another soon!04/05/2018, By DanuNot sure about the anti-wrinkle benefits, but I love this pillowcase. My face no longer feels like it is scrubbed raw in the morning - I thought my skin was just sensitive, but now I can feel the difference.16/04/2018, By ZohraThe silk pillow case made a big difference to my hair. My curly hair is normally very dry. Since I have started sleeping on the silk pillow case I find that my hair is less dried out and less frizzy.12/04/2018, By LizIt is certainly soft and I think it's easier on my hair but as for the supposed anti-wrinkle benefits - afraid not. I still wake up looking like a crumpled piece of laundry. Going to have to teach myself to sleep on my back I guess ...12/03/2018, By SilmaI bought this as a spoil for myself. It feels lovely and luxurious. I don't know if the anti-wrinkle benefits are really real, but I have definitely noticed that my face creams etc are still on my face when I wake up. This just made me realise that my previous pillows were probably absorbing my cream! Anyway, I love this pillow :)20/02/2018, By WENDYWonderful, soft and silky pillowcases. Love sleeping on them09/02/2018, By MaureenGlad to hear the moths enjoy their chopped cranberry leaves and chemical free environment before they are killed for silk production. OK I guess if you don't care about how your products are produced. Not something I would ever use.04/02/2018, By EKI really love this! I mix it with my spf daycream and still get the glowy look and feel19/01/2018, By GabriellaI love these pillowcases. They are exactly as promised, super soft, luxurious, excellent quality and a dream to sleep on.

They are pure luxury and a girls best friend. Who doesn't want to sleep on silk pillowcases?! Money well spent and a little luxury at the end of each day!06/09/2017, By AzeezaIt's a dream to sleep on. If you have oily hair/skin you have to wash it more often but it is worth it!20/07/2017, By colleenI'm comparing it to egyptian cotton and it's more of a luxury. Don't know if it has benefits for hair or skin. It's just a little luxury to me.
Just add a silk eye mask.15/06/2017, By CATHI bought this pillow case for the anti-wrinkle claims made by the supplier. Really a load of rubbish, it definitely doesn't reduce this at all. Its nice and soft but thats about it. If you feel like buying it to reduce sleep wrinkles don't waste your money. Havn't noticed any benefits to my hair or skin either.10/06/2017, By MI have never had worse sleep wrinkles04/06/2017, By LI'm guessing I need to give it more time - but these past two days I've been waking up with more sleep wrinkles. The pillowcase is soft and comfortable to sleep on.16/03/2017, By ChantelleI absolutely love my silk pillowcase . So luxurious to sleep on , and super soft ! Definately worth the indulgence.24/10/2016, By JuliaWow, I don know if Ill ever be able to sleep on a cotton pillowcase again! This silk pillow slip is just amazing. So soft and smooth. Ive only been using it for 2 weeks, but I find that the skin on my face is less red/irritated when I wake up in the morning.13/09/2016, By MaryFabulous!26/05/2016, By PrueAbsolutely wonderful.
