Cools body temperature

Silk may not be the most cooling bedding option, but it certainly does regulate temperature.

According to Lexie Sachs, Associate Director of the Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab, silk fibres are inherently temperature-regulating.

Unlike cotton, which absorbs moisture, silk wicks moisture away to keep you dry and cool all night long.

Silk provides a breathable, yet insulating barrier between yourself and the surrounding temperature, which can keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

This in turn helps a person to sleep better.
