19 vs 22 Momme Silk Pillowcase

What is Momme?

Momme is a Japanese word used as a unit of measurement for the weight of silk. momme, usually abbreviated as mm, the larger the momme the thicker the silk fabric. The momme of silk is the gram weight of the fabric, and generally speaking, the greater the gram weight, the more raw silk material used and the higher the cost.

But you can't simply say that the heavier the gram weight of the fabric, the better the fabric. For example, it is very hot to cover with 30 or even 40 momme of silk cover in summer. Therefore, the thickness of silk is closely related to the season of use and the purpose of the fabric. In summer, it is best to use 16 momme silk, while the spring and autumn season often use 19-25 momme silk, as for winter, the use of more than 30 momme silk will be better.

The higher momme weight the better?

Momme is a measure of quality. A heavier, stronger, and more resilient silk results from an increase in momme. Lightweight silk is defined as being 17 momme or less, and is frequently used for delicate, gently-worn goods like summer scarves or light blouses. Our goal is to produce silk bedding of the highest caliber. Lightweight silk is less expensive but produces a lower quality item. All THXSILK silk bedding is created with silk that is 19 momme or higher.

Nearly 20% more silk is present per square inch in 22 momme silk than in 19 momme. The luster and gloss of silk are preserved by the denser weave, which also increases durability. 22 momme pure silk sheets are thought to last almost twice as long as sheets with lesser momme weights. The best quality silk pillowcases will combine these key factors: Momme (mm) density count + quality grade + silk type = The ultimate in luxury and self-care.

What are the thread counts of THXSILK SILK PILLOWCASE ?

Any pillowcase you look at will almost certainly mention the thread count. If you're unfamiliar, thread count refers to the material's number of threads per square inch. Usually, thread count refers to the total number of lengthwise and widthwise threads. The next time you see a pillowcase, goose down duvet cover, or any other fabric with a thread count of, say, 600, know that it has 300 threads running lengthwise and 300 running across the width of the fabric.

Generally speaking, a fabric with a thread count of 400 or above will be really soft and feel wonderful against the skin. Experts assert that there is little physical difference between fabrics until you pass the 400-point mark. Therefore, there won't be much of a difference between a cloth with a thread count of 500 and one with a thread count of 600. So, your objective should be to purchase a pillowcase with a thread count of at least 400. In addition, more does not always equate to better.

Our naturally hypoallergenic silk sheet sets will offer you the health advantages, beauty, and refinement you want in luxury bedding, regardless of the weight you select.
