At Mulberry Park Silks, our pillowcases come in three momme weights, ranging from 19 to 30 momme (mm), a unit of measurement that denotes the weight of silk. As momme increases, silk is heavier, denser in weave, and more costly. In this way, momme silk is similar to thread count for cotton sheets.
Understanding Silk Pillowcase Weight
Learning a bit about the different momme silk weights can help you identify the silk pillowcase that works best for your personal preferences and budget:
19 Momme Silk Pillowcase Weight
This is a lovely silk and our most affordable option. With a competitive price point, our 19 momme pillowcases are an ideal entry-level purchase for anyone new to silk who wants to try it out. Our 19 momme natural silk
pillowcases are luxurious and beneficial to hair and skin; however, they have less silk than those of higher momme weight, and so are a bit more delicate. Available in 6 color options: White, Ivory and Black (to coordinate with our 19 momme sheet sets), as well as Pink, Blue, and Green
22 Momme Silk Pillowcase Weight
This silk pillowcase is more expensive, but still available at an affordable price point. Our 22 momme silk pillowcases are the same weight as our most popular sheet set. They contain 16 percent more silk than the 19 momme pillowcase and offer excellent durability in a tight weave with regular silk strands. Available in 10 color options: White, Ivory, Sand, Silver, Gunmetal, Rose Quartz, and Steel Blue (to coordinate with our 22 momme bedding) as well as Black, Sage, and Plum.
30 Momme Silk Pillowcase Weight
The 30 momme silk pillowcases are the ultimate in luxury and indulgence. With 58 percent more silk than a 19 momme pillowcase, they are an investment-level pillowcase. Our 30 momme pillowcases are exceptionally durable, with the highest density of silk; the tightest weave; and the thickest silk strands. They come in Ivory (to coordinate with our 30 momme sheet sets), White, Silver, Gunmetal, Navy, and Ruby.
