These Silk Sheet Sets Will Bring Maximum Luxury to Your Bedroom
Luminous silk fabric is striking in any form, but silk sheets bring a special sophistication into your bedroom. "If you want to upgrade your bedroom experience, I recommend getting a set of silk sheets," notes Robert Pagano, the co-founder of Sleepline. "They will be much easier on the skin than cotton options—plus they add an unmistakable touch of luxury that no other type of bedding can offer."
All silk bedding provides similar benefits due to the fabric's chemical makeup. "Silk is a flat, smooth, natural material that tends to be more breathable than other fabrics and allows you to rest better at night," Pagano adds. "It's cooler to sleep on because it doesn't retain heat the same way other fabrics, like cotton or wool, do." It's also a sustainable choice; according to Charlie Bradley Ross, a textile expert and founder of The Sustainable Fashion Collective, "the raw material is a renewable resource, unlike non-recycled synthetics that permanently deplete natural resources." It doesn't hurt that silk is also as cozy and elegant as it gets: "These fibers make for a much more comfortable textile next to the skin, as well as a fabric that can drape beautifully with the right weave structure," Ross says. Ahead, we rounded up some of the most luxurious and stylish silk and silk alternative sheet sets—vegan options included, if you are not quite ready to splurge or want to avoid textiles spun by silkworms—on the market to help you achieve the opulent bedroom of your dreams.
