Silk Pillow Slips / Silk Pillowcase – FAQ’s
As a leading silk pillowcase supplier to homes & businesses across the world – here are some of the common questions we get asked.
Is it 100% pure silk?
Of course! All our Flair™ products are made of the highest grade (6A) of long fibre, 100% pure mulberry silk.
We produce our pillowcases according to very high standards of quality, and we never use any toxic dyes.
What is Flair
These pillowcases are hypoallergenic, totally natural, and do wonders for your skin and hair while you are sleeping due to their non-absorbent fibers.
How is a Flair silk pillowcase going to help my skin?
Your face and hair come into direct contact with your pillowcase much more than any other fabric, and because Flair™ fibers are much less absorbent than cotton, your face will be better hydrated than if you sleep on a more absorbent fabric like cotton.
Furthermore the smoothness and softness of these pillowcases mean there will be much less friction on your face as your roll around at night.
How is a Flair silk pillow slip going to help my hair?
If you are sick of waking up in the morning with wild bed-head, a high-quality silk pillowcase will actually improve the situation significantly.
A lot of your bed-hair comes from rolling and scraping your hair all night across a relatively rough surface. Silk pillowcases are much smoother and less hard on your hair.
What is 22 Momme Silk?
Momme weight is a means of measuring the quality of silk, and the higher the momme weight, the higher quality the silk is.
Silk bedding with a high momme weight like 22 will appear significantly shinier and more lustrous, and will also last significantly longer (sometimes up to twice as long as silk bedding with a lower momme weight).
Is a Flair silk pillowcase easy to wash?
Not at all! Simply make sure to choose a laundry detergent that is meant to be used with silk (one that don’t contain enzymes or bleach that will harm your silk).
Machine wash them with cold water on a gentle cycle, and to go even easier on them you can wash them inside of a mesh laundry bag.
Likewise it is also highly recommended to air dry your silk bedding in order to avoid doing any damage to them from being tossed and scraped around inside of your machine dryer.
How often should silk pillowcases be washed?
Depending on how much facial cream or moisturizers you use, pillowcases can become dirty quite quickly.
Even if you shower before bed, we recommend washing your pillowcases every week to make sure they are always very clean.
If you have a cold or a serous acne problem then you might sometimes want to wash your sheets even more than once per week.
Having a spare set of pillowcases can be a big help for situations in which you need to wait for your first set to air dry overnight.
What is your return policy?
If you are unsatisfied for whatever reason with your pillowcases, you may return them within the first 60 days.
You can simply contact our customer care center for a refund.
