Sure, there was a time when only members of royalty slept on silk bedding, but a) you are royalty and b) you might have a royal case of allergies that like to act up at night. Whether you desire them for luxury or health reasons, the best silk comforters provide an unbelievably comfortable, sneeze-free sleeping experience. And, contrary to what you might think, there's a silk comforter for every type of budget.
Adding an opulent silk comforter to your room will make your bed more comfortable and more stylish, for sure, but there are a slew of other reasons to love this fabric. Comforters filled with high-quality mulberry silk are usually lightweight and breathable enough to withstand most temperatures and seasons. If you happen to live in an unusually warm or cold place and still want a silk blanket, many brands offer different versions with adjusted weights to suit specific seasons. You won't be able to wash most silk comforters in a washing machine (even though they'll likely have a cotton or cotton sateen outershell), but covering it with a duvet will take care of that.
And, if you suffer from allergies, or the mere thought of bugs makes you want to crawl up a wall, you can rest easier when you use a silk comforter. This antibacterial fabric is resistant to allergies, dust mites, and even bed bugs.
So go ahead and get your royal sleep on with one of these five insanely comfortable silk comforters.
