As we head into a new year and new products it is high time we introduced you to our new supplier of Silk Quilts….. New Zealand Nature.
In our journey to find a supplier that had the same ethos as we do and the quality we are after when it comes to silk quilts we hunted high and low!
New Zealand nature is a certified CarboNZero company and uses organic casing in its range of silk duvets (quilts).
Sizes are standard Australian sizing from single through to Super King and on offer is a light summer weight, medium winter weight and the ability to purchase a combo set which includes a summer and winter silk quilt that can be joined together.
We still have our All Year weight in sizes Super King and Double but for all other sizes we recommend you use the Quilts-NZ nature tab: http://www.ecosleepaustralia.com.au/quilts---nznature.html
The benefits of using silk quilts are as follows:
About Silk Bedding
Silk is a natural insulator
Depending on the temperature, silk either draws heat away from the body or traps in the warmth. In the winter the large fibres reduce heat loss from the body, but in the summer the silk fleece sheds surplus heat by wicking away moisture from your body, keeping you cool and comfortable.
This also means that one duvet will satisfy 2 sleepers with different needs of warmth.
Silk is naturally hypoallergenic:
It is resistant to dust and house mites, mildew, mould and rot that attacks other fibres. Sufferers of asthma, blocked sinuses or other hay fever symptoms can find relief in silk bedding as well as those with allergies to down or synthetic material.
Silk is composed of 18 amino acids
The same amino acids that are found in our own bodies. Medical studies show that this can help blood circulation and the digestion system during sleep. It also helps to reduce the discomfort of itchy skin and aids in preventing vascular sclerosis.
Silk comforters are also suited to children
Their lightweight nature and breathable qualities ensure a regulated even sleep temperature.
Silk duvets provide the same warmth as down comforters.
They are comfortable all year round due to their insulating properties.
Our silk duvets (comforters) are manufactured in China under strict quality control, ensuring that the Grade A mulberry silk filling is of the finest quality. The silk threads are teased out to the size of the duvet and layered multiple times to create a thick floss. Detailed stitching ensures the silk filling is held well in place, eliminating any cold spots, and it will remain like this for its entire lifetime.
Feel the difference yourself! Once you have experienced our silk duvets, you will not want to sleep under any other cover again.
Thank you for your patience and we hope you enjoy the benefits of sleeping under a light and luxurious silk quilt in 2014.
