Who Should Consider Buying A Silk Quilt, And Why?

Buying A Silk Quilt

A good night's sleep is essential for our overall well-being, and a comfortable silk quilt can make all the difference. However, not all silk quilts are created equal. There are silk quilts... and there are silk quilts designed specifically for people with unique wants and needs.

At Silky U, we understand that everyone has diverse lifestyles and personal preferences. That’s why our quilts, unlike any other in Australia, are designed specifically for people with different sleeping habits, body temperatures and skin sensitivity.

Sleeping Habits

Hot Sleepers and People Living in Regions with a Hot Climate

If you live in a hot climate or tend to feel hot while you sleep, a silk quilt can be a game-changer. Silk quilts are lightweight, breathable, and naturally moisture-wicking, which helps regulate your body temperature and keeps you cool and comfortable all night long.

Our Summer Silk Quilt with a TENCEL Shell is the lightest quilt on the Australian market and may look like the ideal option for you, but it may not be the case. Read on, and we'll explain why.

Cold Sleepers

If you tend to feel chilly at night and struggle with retaining heat, a silk quilt can also be an excellent choice. Silk is an insulating fabric that helps trap heat, making silk quilts a superb option for people who live in colder climates or prefer to sleep under a bit more warmth.

Our All Season Silk Quilt with a Cotton Cover might be your best pick at first glance, but, in fact, another option could be more beneficial for you.

Couples with Different Body Temperatures

If you and your partner have different body temperatures, a silk quilt can be a lifesaver. Silk can help regulate both your body temperatures, so you can stay comfortable all night under the one quilt.

Plus, silk quilts are incredibly lightweight and breathable, so you won't feel weighed down or suffocated while you sleep. So which quilt is most suitable for you? Keep reading to find out.

 Women Going Through the Menopausal Transition

 If you're going through menopause, you know how challenging it is to get a good night's sleep when it's constantly disrupted by hot flashes and night sweats.

Although a silk quilt is not a silver bullet and can't eliminate these disruptions, it can help regulate your body temperature and wick away moisture, helping you sleep better every night during the transition period.

Skin Types, Allergies and Skin Problems

Silk is naturally hypoallergenic and gentle on the skin, making it an excellent choice for most people. However, you should also consider your unique skin type and any allergies or skin issues.

We have designed our quilts to be especially beneficial for people with different skin types and for those, who might have some allergies.

If you have normal or dry skin, a quilt with a cotton cover is ideal for you. People with sensitive skin, allergies, and other skin problems should consider a quilt with a TENCEL shell.

TENCEL absorbs more moisture than cotton, but, at the same time, it is ten times more resistant to bacterial growth, thanks to its antibacterial properties. This feature makes our quilts with a TENCEL shell a perfect choice for people with allergies or skin sensitivities. But if you have dry skin, you should buy a quilt with a cotton cover.

We believe that everyone deserves a good night's sleep

A silk quilt can be an excellent investment for almost everyone, from hot sleepers and people with allergies to couples with different body temperatures and women going through menopause. When shopping for a silk quilt, consider your unique needs and choose a high-quality one that suits you the most.

Silky U quilts are the epitome of comfort and indulgence. Filled with the finest quality 100% long-strand Mulberry silk, they provide a soft and smooth touch that feels heavenly against your body and will keep you cosy all night long.

Imagine having a snug, restful sleep all night, every night, regardless of season, waking up well-rested and refreshed and tackling the day without feeling groggy or tired.

That’s exactly what our silk quilts have been created for.
