Care Instructions

For the quilts with TENCEL covers, we recommend using a gentle pH-neutral liquid detergent and cold water to prevent damage to the silk fibres. 

For the quilts with cotton covers: the cover should be removed and washed separately as standard cotton bed linen. We don't recommend washing the silk filling. Dry clean (no trichloroethylene!) it instead.

What Our Customers Say About Our Silk Doonas

Summer Silk Quilt

The Lightest Silk Quilt in Australia

Designed specifically for hot sleepers, our summer quilts with a TENCEL cover are the lightest silk quilts on the Australian market - a Queen size quilt weighs less than 2 kg.

Based on the feedback we receive from our customers, these quilts are also the ideal choice for women going through menopausal or post-menopausal transition.

Finally! You can stop night sweats and overheating and sleep peacefully without feeling too hot, no matter the temperature.

What Makes Our Silk Quilts Stand Out

Superior materials

You may wonder why our silk quilts are priced slightly higher than some of our competitors. The answer is simple - we only use the highest quality materials.

  • Our quilts are filled with 6A Grade Mulberry silk, the world's finest and most expensive silk.
  • Our cotton covers are manufactured from 400TC (thread count) 100% Cotton, a higher grade than the industry standard of 200-300TC.
  • For TENCEL covers, we use the original fabric produced by Lenzing, the leading European textile manufacturer.

Exceptional craftsmanship

Among the most modern in China, our manufacturing facility utilises advanced techniques and processes and employs highly skilled personnel.  

The attention to detail, from quilting and piping to packaging, contributes to the overall excellence of silk quilts.

Two cover materials - for a reason

Cotton is an excellent fabric for a quilt cover, which absorbs very little moisture during sleep, making it a perfect choice for people with dry or normal skin.

For those with sensitivities, a cotton cover can cause itchy, cracked, and irritated skin. So, we designed our silk quilts with a TENCEL cover, especially for people with sensitive skin (and allergies).

The only silk quilt in Australia of its type

We've introduced a unique design that allows you to remove the cotton cover and wash it separately from the silk filling.

We still recommend using a separate quilt cover, but our cotton cover provides the perfect protector for the silk filling.

Washing a silk quilt is now a breeze! You don't need to be a laundry expert. Just remove the cover, toss it in the washing machine and wash it as you would normally wash any cotton items.

The lightest silk quilt on the market

Our Summer silk quilt with a TENCEL cover is the lightest on the Australian market.

With only 150 GSM and an actual weight of less than 2 kg, it's a perfect solution to stay cool even during the hottest summer nights.

Customer service we are proud of

We are a small Australian-owned and operated family business. We don't have offshore call centres to answer phone calls and don't use chatbots to handle online enquiries.

We are personally here for you. Just get in touch if you have any questions or need any assistance.

Did we mention that we don't dropship? All our products are dispatched from our Melbourne warehouse.

How to insert your silk quilt into a cover

  1. Unzip the quilt cover, turn it inside out and place it on the bed.
  2. Put the summer silk quilt on top of the cover and tie the strings to the quilt loops (4 in the corners and 4 on the sides).
  3. Roll up the quilt together with the cover from top to bottom.
  4. Pull the corners through from the inside so the bottom of the quilt is now inside the cover and roll it back out.
  5. Zip it up and - VOILÀ - you're all set!

6 Irresistible Reasons to Buy a Silk Quilt

1. Supreme Comfort

If you suffer from allergies or have sensitive skin, a silk quilt is your new best friend. Hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites, mould and bacteria, it'll help you sleep peacefully without any sneezes or sniffles and keep your bed clean and hygienic.

4. Temperature Regulation

Unlike any other quilt, a silk quilt acts as your own thermostat, working WITH your body, not against it, keeping you warm in colder months and pleasantly cool in hot seasons to ensure a comfortable slumber all year round.

5. Elegance

Silk quilts ooze elegance. Their timeless beauty and high quality craftsmanship add a touch of sophistication to any bedroom.

6. Longevity

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is the difference between a quilt, a doona and a duvet?

Technically, "quilt", "duvet", and "doona" are different terms that describe the same bedding item.

"Quilt" and "doona" are most commonly used in Australia, while "duvet" is a European term. In The United States, people often refer to "quilts" as "comforters".

2. Are silk quilts any good?

Yes, silk quilts are an excellent bedding choice due to their hypoallergenic properties, lightweight, and softness.

They also provide superior temperature regulation, keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter.

3. What is the best silk for a quilt?

Mulberry silk is considered the best for a quilt due to its high quality and durability.

Produced by silkworms fed exclusively on mulberry leaves, Mulberry silk is known for its softness, strength, and natural sheen.

4. Are Mulberry silk quilts worth it?

Absolutely! Mulberry silk quilts are worth the investment due to their high quality, hypoallergenic properties, and temperature regulation.

They are also long-lasting and provide excellent comfort and softness.

5. Can you wash a silk quilt?

Yes, you can wash silk quilts.

For the quilts with TENCEL covers, we recommend using a gentle pH-neutral liquid detergent and cold water to prevent damage to the silk fibres. 

For the quilts with cotton covers: the cover should be removed and washed separately as standard cotton bed linen. We don't recommend washing the silk filling. Dry clean (no trichloroethylene!) it instead.

It is also essential to follow our silk bedding care instructions.

6. How often should you wash a silk doona?

We recommend washing a silk doona every 6-12 months, depending on the usage and other factors, such as humidity and dust.

7. Do you put a quilt cover on a silk quilt?

Yes, we recommend using a quilt cover on a silk quilt to protect it from dirt and dust and to provide an extra layer of warmth and comfort.

8. How long do silk doona last?

Silk doonas can last 10-15 years with proper care and maintenance. It is essential to follow our care instructions for cleaning and storage to extend the lifespan of your silk doona.

9. What is the best way to store a silk quilt?

The best way to store a silk quilt is to fold it neatly and keep it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and moisture.

10. Can the silk filling inside the quilt cover move about?

No, it can not.

The cover has 8 loops (4 in the corners and 4 in the middle of each side), and the silk filling has 8 strings tied with the cover's loops, so it's fixed firmly within the cover.
