Owner of Monday Silks, Kate, found the benefits of mulberry silk were magical for her girls and is on a mission to spread the word.
"Our babies are the most precious gift on earth and tend to spend a lot of time sleeping in their first year. Silk helps protect and nourish their delicate skin and hair."
1. Reduces Hair Loss & Knotty Hair
By sleeping your baby on silk their head glides across the smooth silk surface, reducing friction and pulling at the hair. This means less hair loss and knotty hair.
Silk is hypoallergenic and a natural resistance to dust mites, fungus and mould, in addition to many other allergens. The use of silk is recommended for babies with eczema and asthma due to its numerous antibacterial qualities.
3. Breathable & Regulates Temperature
Mulberry silk is breathable and naturally regulates your baby's temperature to help keep them cool during summer and warm during winter.
Silk doesn’t absorb moisture and natural oils like materials such as cotton and therefore keeps their skin and hair hydrated.
Our Silk Cot Sleeves are lovingly made using the highest quality 6A long strand fibre, 22 momme mulberry silk. They are fitted with a stretchable backing to hold the silk cot sleeve in position for safe sleeping.

Because babies have delicate skin, all our silk is made using a chemical free method. This means that our Silk Cot Sleeves are tested for any harmful substances and are Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified.
My baby daughter is a back sleeper and was rubbing her head resulting in a very large bald patch. Since using the cot sleeve her hair is now recovering and growing. It is super soft and fitting around the mattress stays in place and doesn't clump. - Kirsty B
