    Silk Pillowcases and Sheets Product Review: Mulberry Park Silks vs. Lilysilk

    Comparing Quality and Value in Silk

    At Mulberry Park Silks, we pride ourselves on being completely transparent about the quality and pricing of our pure silk bedding and accessories. Since our founding, we’ve remained true to our mission of selling the finest silk at fair and affordable prices. That’s why we always welcome a rigorous comparison between our company and other silk retailers.

    Today we’re going to compare Mulberry Park Silks with Lilysilk, one of our competitors that markets silk sheets, pillowcases and accessories as well as clothing. While many of our offerings are similar to those of Lilysilk, there are some significant differences between the companies that absolutely impact consumers. In the article, we will be focusing on pillowcases and sheets, which are popular products carried by both companies.

    About Lilysilk: Bedding, Accessories and Clothing

    The brand: Lilysilk is a lifestyle brand that sells silk sheets, pillowcases and accessories along with a wide range of apparel made of silk, cashmere, blends, and other luxury materials. Their website offers products for men and women, with a special focus on comfortable silk clothing and sleepwear. As a fashion brand, Lilysilk is able to focus on the fact that silk is a natural fiber that is biodegradable, which makes it a sustainable option for the clothing market.

    Products: When it comes to silk bedding, Lilysilk offers silk pillowcases, sheets, and silk duvet covers as well as silk blankets and cotton covered silk floss duvets. The bed sheets and pillowcases come in 19, 22, and 25 momme weight and a wide range of colors and patterns. The pillowcases are available in both hidden zipper and envelope closure. For reference, a 19 momme count queen fitted sheet, queen silk flat sheet, and queen pillowcase costs $464 with prices escalating for heavier momme weights; a 22 momme queen sheet set costs $980 but is frequently discounted. For reference, a 19 momme silk is approximately equivalent to 600 thread count in a cotton sheet (learn more about momme weight in silk here). Lilysilk pillowcases and sheets are made from pure mulberry silk charmeuse of the highest grade silk fiber (6A). The silk fabric is also OEKO-TEX certified.

    Pricing and Policies: Lilysilk list prices are on the high end for the market. However, there are always a variety of sales and promotions. This type of pricing structure can be a bit confusing for consumers, as it is difficult to determine whether a given item is a good value. Lilysilk does not charge for shipping, but it is unclear whether those fees are “baked in” to the higher prices charged. There is also a disclaimer on the website that mentions customs duties may be charged and will be refunded. Lilysilk is headquartered in Nanjing, the capital city of Jiangsu province in China. This could be an impediment to accessible and responsive customer service.

    About Mulberry Park Silks Bedding and Accessories

    The brand: Mulberry Park Silks was founded as a sister company to leading online luxury linen retailer, Fine Linen and Bath. At Mulberry Park Silks, we think silk is the absolute most luxurious bedding on earth (while also being great for hair, skin and sleep!). Our design team set out to source the highest quality pure mulberry silk pillowcases and sheets with a threefold purpose:

    1. Design, manufacture, and sell the high-quality silk at a fair price
    2. Promote the health and wellness benefits of sleeping on silk
    3. Teach our clients how to get the best value when shopping for silk

    At heart, Mulberry Park Silks is a silk bedding company. From our 19 momme silk pillowcase to a 30 momme silk bed sheet set and beyond, our mission is to create a sleep oasis of rest, renewal, beauty and wellness with silk. Over time, our offerings have organically grown to include other types of bed linen (including baby and toddler bed sheets, duvet covers, and more) as well as silk accessories such as scrunchies, head scarves, and sleep masks. The newest addition to our accessory line is a silk aromatherapy lavender eye pillow.

    Products: As we mentioned earlier, Mulberry Park Silks is completely transparent about the quality of our silk. We are dedicated to educating our customers not only about the many benefits of sleeping on silk, but also about how to obtain the best value when buying silk, including specifics of what to look for (read our blog on what to beware of when purchasing a silk pillowcase). Our silk bedding line includes envelope-closure pillowcases and bed sheets in 19, 25, and 30 momme weights as well as duvet covers, silk shams, and bedding essentials such as duvet inserts. A 19 momme count queen silk sheet set (flat, fitted, two pillowcases) costs $446; a 22 momme queen sheet set costs $630 (far more affordable than the list price of $980 at Lilysilk). Our highest momme weight, 30 momme, is also heavier and more lustrous than 25 momme silk, which is the heaviest sold by Lilysilk. All of our silk is also OEKO-TEX certified to be free of any toxins and chemicals through every phase of the production process. Learn more about OEKO-TEX and why it matters to your family here.

    Pricing and Policies: Consistent with our commitment to transparency and value, Mulberry Park Silks prices our beautiful silk bedding fairly and competitively. We will never inflate our prices simply so that we can offer a “sale” or “promotion.” We believe that fine silk is an investment, but you need never overpay for good quality. We also want you to be entirely satisfied with your purchase, which is why we have an innovative silk swatch sample program; you can order complementary silk swatches of the weight and color silk you’re interested in to review at home prior to purchasing. Mulberry Park Silks is headquartered in Branford, CT, and is a family-run business. When you call our company (and you should! Our number is (800) 860-1924) you will talk directly to one of our design team or our CEO. We are here to answer questions, offer advice on silk care, and resolve any issues that might arise.

    Comparing Mulberry Park Silks vs. Lilysilk

    Both Lilysilk and Mulberry Park Silks are reputable companies offering high-quality silk bedding, pillowcases, and accessories. But we believe there are several compelling reasons to choose Mulberry Park Silks over Lilysilk:

    1. Only Mulberry Park Silks is a silk bedding company staffed by a design team with a background in luxury home linen.
    2. Mulberry Park Silks has consistent and transparent pricing. For instance, Lilysilk charges more for their 25 momme pillowcase than Mulberry Park Silks does for a 30 momme pillowcase of heavier weight and higher quality.
    3. Mulberry Park Silks does not inflate prices just to offer discounts. Lilysilk’s 22 momme queen sheet set is $980 vs. $630 for a comparable 22 momme queen sheet set at Mulberry Park Silks. Even with Lilysilk’s frequent 25 percent off discount, that set still costs $735. A discount does not necessarily mean a good value.
    4. Mulberry Park Silks offers complementary swatch samples so you can see and feel the quality of what you are buying before you commit.
    5. Mulberry Park Silks is a family-run business headquartered in Connecticut. You can call us with questions or comments at any time. Lilysilk is an offshore company headquartered in Nanjing, in the Jiangsu province of China.
    6. Mulberry Park Silks offers free shipping and our best value pricing. Lilysilk’s “free shipping” is baked into higher item costs.
