Mulberry silk is a natural heat regulator, it helps to maintain the air around you when you sleep with a silk duvet. Being at a comfortable temperature allows for a deeper sleep. Silk does not conduct heat or static electricity, so it helps to maintain the correct body temperature for you. Although heat is retained during cold temperatures, it does not get trapped under a silk duvet or blanket, allowing you to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Sleeping on silk, your skin stays more hydrated, as it is less likely to absorb the natural moisture from your face and hair, unlike other fibre’s like cotton. Better hydration means clearer and healthier skin. Silk is also naturally Hypoallergenic. For asthma and allergy sufferers, there are many triggers such as chemicals and common indoor allergens which can aggravate both diseases.
Silk is also great for your hair and can help prevent thinning. Although Cotton can feel soft to your skin, its weave can actually grip and tug at your hair, causing damage and breakage. Not only can you wake up more refreshed in the morning but your silk pillowcase can lessen the issue with knotted hair and split ends. Silk can also lessen the dehydration of your hair, giving it a shinier appearance and decreasing the chance of waking with greasy Hair.
Royal alpaca classifications only happen in the Peru Andean regions (and some in nearby Bolivia) These classifications are done by hand, by artisans who select the finest alpaca fibre between both breeds of Alpaca (Suri and Huacaya). This Alpaca fibre selection is impossible to be done in any other part of the World.
By purchasing our throw rugs, you are helping to support many Andean highland families which live below the poverty line. Our manufacturer purchases the Alpaca fibre directly from these families at a fair-trade price and processes the beginning to end product. Yarn is not purchased from the oligopoly company players in Peru unlike other products on the market.
