Momme is a form of weight measurement that is used for silk, often compared to how other fabrics are measures in thread count. Pronounced “mom-ee” and abbreviated as “mm”. Silk fabric that is less than 20mm is considered lightweight. Silks products that are made of 19mm silk equates to a 600 thread count and 22mm silk that parallels to a 900 thread count.
Why is Silk safer than Cotton or Polyester Fabric?
Being a protein based fiber, silk does not burn in the same way that cotton or synthetics. Silk burns very slowly and is more resistant to even light. It is self-extinguishing and gives out little or no smoke.
Mulberry Silk uses only environmentally-safe dyes and all products are OEKO-TEX Certified (Standard 100) to be free of chemicals.
Why is Silk Good for Hair and Skin?
Similar in structure to natural hair, silk contains naturally occurring amino acids. Silk is naturally hypo-allergenic and due to it's natural resistance to moisture will not allow mildew or fungus to grow and will not pick up as much pore-clogging bacteria as cotton does. This makes silk an ideal option for those with acne or breakout prone skin. Silk is great for those with allergies since dust mites do not survive on silk. Because of silk’s smooth, soft surface, delicate skin and hair follicles gently glide across the surface making it perfect for those with sensitive skin or conditions such as Eczema or Psoriasis. Silk allows hair to retain moisture that promotes more healthy and even growth.
Silk versus Satin, What’s the difference?
Silk is a natural protein fibre while Satin is typically made of synthetic fibres such as polyester or nylon. Polyester is essentially a fabric that is created from oil and has the same chemical composition as plastic bottles. Synthetic Satin and Natural Silk have a very different feel against the skin. Polyester Satin is more slippery with a distinct texture while Natural silk is softer in feel and the Charmeuse weave offers a more subtle reduction in friction. Unlike Synthetic fabrics, Silk is naturally hypoallergenic and resistant to mold, mildew, fungus and dust mites.
In love with my silk pillowcase, about to go and order other one.
I have this color now in addition to the peach colored one and I love them. Such good sleep and my hair doesn't look like it came from the battlefield when I wake up in the mornings. More over I'm not finding strands of my hair being pulled out while I sleep.
Very beautiful i decide to buy it very comfortable
I’ve never had a silk pillow case before so I’ve been well excited to try it, it’s so amazing! It makes me feel posh! It doesn’t irritate my face! Will need to buy another one as I have two pillows
I usually don't do reviews but this one definitely deserves one, I absolutely love the silk pillow case. So much so I purchased 2 of them. It feels so soft on my skin, been using it since I first purchased it.
Love love it . I received my order on the 5th of February 2022 and started using it 4 days after . I don’t regret at all using this the silk pillow case. A Money worth spent then I have never had my scarf stayed on the whole entire night on normal pillow cases. My face is also very refreshed and vey hydrated in the mornings on this silk pillow case . I tried it couple times with my bare hair and no hair fell off on the pillow the next morning and it has certainly help me shed very less hair after just 10 days of using it. All products of Ominira natural I have used so far are worthy of money . Thank you very much Jane and your team for your genuine commitment for our hair journey . It’s rare to find such a team and it’s products . ❤️God bless you all.
These luxury silk pillowcases are A1! I have used them for two months now, and I don't think I can go back to the old pillowcases. If my bonnet comes off, I have this added layer of protection to keep my hair moisturised - especially important for when I have set a twist out. On some nights I just pineapple my hair and use the silk pillowcase - my hair is great in the morning. I have washed the pillowcases multiple times - the quality of the material is excellent. The silk pillowcase also just FEEL lush on my face.
