What is the ZIMASILK Mulberry Silk Pillowcase Made of?
The ZIMASILK Mulberry Silk Pillowcase is made of high-quality 100% Mulberry silk on both sides. The material of these cases is 6A grade silk, 19 Momme with 600 thread count.
One might wonder why Mulberry silk is so special. This is the highest quality silk in the world, and when you compare it to other types, it’s different in the way it is created. As you’ve probably heard before, silk is produced by Bombyx mori silkworms. The unique part about Mulberry silk is that the silkworms are placed on leaves from Mulberry trees.
Once they’re fed enough, they are ready to start building a cocoon. All of the eggs that a moth lays are placed in controlled conditions and a designated temperature so they can grow. The tiny silkworms that hatch from the eggs are fed again, and so the circle goes on. This is a lengthy process that requires time, attention, and results with a high-quality product. Now you probably get why Mulberry silk is such an expensive material.
The fabric used for the ZIMASILK Mulberry pillowcases is Grade 6A silk. The quality of silk is divided into three grades, A, B, and C. A is the highest one, meaning that you’re getting pure, fine, high-quality fabric. The other category used to describe the material’s quality is numbers 1 to 6, 6 being the highest.
Another feature that the brand mentions, you might not find familiar is 19 Momme. It’s another unit that describes the quality, measures the weight and the density of threads. The higher the number is, the better the quality, the more the material weighs, has a bigger thread count, shinier appearance, and is more durable.
This pillowcase is sold in six different sizes: Toddler, Throw, Standard, Queen, King, and Body. What impressed us the most is the wide variety of colors available to choose from. If you’re in the market for a silk pillowcase but you’re also looking for shades that are outside of the regular spectrum, this is where you’ll find them. Aside from the solid colors, there are two pretty prints as well. Each order includes a single pillowcase, so that’s something to keep in mind.
Silk is a fabric that features a gorgeous sheen and a slippery finish. This makes it perfect for pillowcases, offering numerous benefits for your hair and skin. What elevates the esthetic of the ZIMASILK pillowcases even more is the hidden zipper.
One of the reasons why we like the ZIMASILK pillowcases is because they are OEKO-TEX certified. Eco-friendly production is an essential thing for our team, and we all highly-appreciate sustainability. When a product is OEKO-TEX certified, it means that it’s free from over 100 harmful toxins and chemicals. Every single detail that is a part of the product is tested, including textiles, zippers, threads, dyes, linings, and more. When buying these pillowcases, you can feel 100% safe.
Our ZIMASILK Mulberry Silk Pillowcase Review
We didn’t spare any details when reviewing the ZIMASILK Mulberry Silk pillowcase, so go ahead and read all about this product. We wanted to give it a score in four primary categories that either make or break the sleeping experience.
Everyone who’s ever slept on a silk pillowcase will tell you that there is no going back once you’ve had a taste of that feeling. Softness is one of the first features people look for in a pillowcase. We’ve slept on so many different types, but not many come close to the fantastic softness of ZIMASILK.
The material is thin, shiny, and very pleasant to the touch. It will not lose any of that soft feeling even after you’ve washed it numerous times. So if this is your priority when purchasing a pillowcase, you should go ahead and pick your size and color. Compared to other fabrics that we’ve tested so far, this one gets a 9.4 out of 10 for softness.
If you’re looking for a new pillowcase that will provide you with a good night’s sleep while also promoting hair and skin health, this is the one. You’ll be well-rested the morning after, without dark bags under your eyes.
One of the things that take comfort to a new level is that you won’t feel hair tugging. Instead, it will be a very smooth experience that is gentle to your hair and face—no more messy and frizzy hair when you wake up. Instead, you’ll have a much smoother, tamed mane that doesn’t require extra work in the morning.
The hidden zipper also helps very much in the comfort department. We’ve tried silk pillowcases that don’t come with a zipper, and it often happened that the pillow slowly slipped off the case. You shouldn’t worry about that with this product.
You will never again wake up with a face that is wrinkled and glued to your cotton pillowcase. Since this is a silk product, it’s also slippery. That won’t change or ruin your sleeping experience in any way, trust us. Your skincare products might cause stains, but they easily come off when you’re washing the pillowcase. That’s why you should wait a few minutes after doing your routine to place your face on the pillow.
As promised, the ZIMASILK Mulberry Silk Pillowcase will keep you cool. Although it is not the coolest silk pillowcase we’ve had, it still did a great job. That’s why we decided to rate it with 9.4 out of 10 for comfort.
Wrinkle Free (8.4/10)
As you can see, these silk pillowcases get the lowest score from us in this category. Although they are easy to maintain and claim to be wrinkle-free, we could still see creases. This is not the worst case of wrinkles in our experience, and it’s something that didn’t bother us. However, we couldn’t omit this part from the ZIMASILK Mulberry Silk Pillowcase review.
The first thing you’ll notice when you open the package is the folding lines on the pillowcase. That’s why you should wash it first before you sleep on it. ZIMASILK offers a very detailed instruction guide on how to take care of their silk pillowcases best.
You’ll achieve the best results if you hand wash this case with water at 86F degrees. When you don’t have the time to do this, machine wash is an option, but make sure you use a delicate setting at 86F degrees. Your pillowcases will last longer, look better, and show fewer wrinkles if you hand wash them. We also tried placing them in garment bags before putting them in the washer, and the results were great.
Next, the drying part is even more critical if you want to avoid creases. The best option is to line dry the silk pillowcases in the shade. Some people opted for the dryer, but it can be very damaging to the material. We were so happy to see that this product dies so quickly. If you’re bothered by the wrinkles, you can either iron the pillowcases or steam them on low heat. Don’t use powdered detergents, bleach, don’t tumble dry them, or take them to the dry cleaners. To prolong the life of the Mulberry silk pillowcases, use a pH neutral liquid detergent.
Despite all our efforts to get a wrinkle-free product, there were still creases. Since people expect to receive a pillowcase without any wrinkles, we wanted to be fully transparent about what they’ll get as promised by the brand. Our final grade is 8.4 out of 10.
Value for Money (9.0/10)
Mulberry silk tends to be expensive, but remember that you’re paying for durable quality. These SIMASILK Mulberry Silk Pillowcases come at a very decent price, and that makes them a great purchase.
We did sleep on the pillowcases for months, but we didn’t notice any significant changes in the way they look or feel. That only testifies that this is a long-term investment, one that will pay up with numerous benefits.
The pillowcases are well made, and the stitching is excellent! The only downside is that the hidden zipper looks a little cheap. It felt a little hard to zip and unzip it at times, and we saw a few loose threads around it. Aside from that, the pillowcases don’t lose their sheen, but the material tends to wrinkle a lot.
Since there are a few pillowcases that feature the same quality as ZIMASILK and are at a slightly lower price range, we decided to give these a 9.0 out of 10 in the ‘value for money’ department. It’s still a purchase we’re ready to make over and over again without any doubts.
Final verdict 9.1
Buying a quality silk pillowcase at a decent price point is always a score! That’s why we can’t stop raving about these ZIMASILK ones. The comfort and softness immediately grabbed our attention, while hair and skin benefits are the ones that convinced us to buy more. If you are bothered by wrinkles and don’t like ironing, you should stay away from this product.
The final conclusion is a 9.1 out of 10. Numbers speak that we loved this product, and we plan on repurchasing it in the future. Our honest recommendation is that you should get at least one of the ZIMASILK Mulberry Silk Pillowcases because they will change your life in terms of comfort, hair health, and skin health.
Although we loved the product for ourselves, we also think it’s a great gift idea, especially for people with curly hair and ones that are obsessed with taking care of their skin. If this already reminds you of someone, make their holidays better with one of these pillowcases in their favorite color.
