Hi Sleep1,

My understanding is that silk is also superior in terms of moisture-wicking, temperature-regulation, and resistance to dust-mites. All of these are issues for me. Both are expensive and require extra care in washing.


While silk is definitely soft and cool to the touch initially ... silk sheets have a finer weave and are less breathable than linen and can also warm up when you sleep on them. In terms of temperature regulation I think most people would say that linen was superior to silk although both are great choices.

I found this site that sells Mulberry silk sheets and they also sell on Amazon.. The Amazon reviews are great, but I am still leaning toward the linen sheets made by linoto.com... Feedback please....

Thanks Phoenix. I guess because I read that silk has better moisture-wicking, holding, and evaporative properties (don't know if it's true of course), that that would translate into cooler sleeping for someone who tends to sleep hot and wake up sweaty. Probably the only way to know for sure is to try both....:)

Looks like those sheets cover all the bases: 19 momme (the best weight for sheets), 100% mulberry charmeuse (the best quality), and a great price. I had found them on Amazon too (same price); I always like to read reviews.

I also found these sheets, which are probably the same sheets but not on sale (some good info on the website though):

Yes to the properties of linen and another yes to trying both would be the best way to know for any particular person.:)

@pglover,

Bouncing back and forth between sheet threads :)

Just in case you haven't seen it ... post #16 and #17 in the "other" active sheet thread may be of interest as well.
