A top-quality silk pillowcase feels super smooth, is comfortable to sleep on, and can help prevent bedhead and sleep lines. Over the last three years, we’ve spent hours researching and testing silk pillowcases from the top bedding brands, evaluating quality, look and feel, and value.
Our best overall pick, the Fishers Finery Mulberry Silk Pillowcase, is made of 100% long-strand silk, feels ultra-luxurious, and is available in 11 rich colors.
Here are the best silk pillowcases.
Our top choice is the Fishers Finery Mulberry Silk Pillowcase (view at Amazon) because it’s made from high-density 25 momme silk and it’s relatively affordable. We also love the Brooklinen Mulberry Silk Pillowcase (view at Brooklinen), which comes in luxe colors.
Silk pillowcases come in a wide range of prices, depending on quality and durability. If want a higher quality case, such as one made out of 100% mulberry silk, you will get the luxurious feel you want, but at a higher price. If you are looking for something more budget-friendly, you can opt for a satin pillowcase, which can still provide similar benefits at a lower cost.
As previously mentioned, there are varying types of silk that can make up a pillowcase. Silk is often separated into various categories (known as grades) to determine its quality. The higher quality silk, the higher the grade—Grade 6a silk is considered the finest and highest quality. If the silk pillowcase you’re looking at doesn’t have mention of grades or levels, it is likely lower quality silk—which will likely be cheaper in price, but not have all the same benefits as one with higher quality.
Most silk pillowcases are insistent on following specific instructions to ensure they last as long as possible and in great condition. While some insist on handwashing and hanging up to dry, others are more flexible in allowing you to wash in a washing machine on a delicate cycle and lay flat when drying. It’s important to be aware of the level of care involved so you aren’t damaging the fibers or losing out on the full benefits of your pillowcase by not looking into how to wash and care for it.
Color and Size
While silk is often associated with the color white, plenty of silk pillowcases come in a variety of colors and styles. If you’ve got your eye on a particular brand, it’s a good idea to ensure they have the proper size and color available to match your bedsheets and work with the pillows you already own. While some brands have a large range of each, some have more limited options, so it’s best to be aware of what each brand offers before making a final decision.
Plenty of silk pillowcases are machine washable, but only on a gentle or delicate setting in cool water. It’s also a good idea to place the pillowcase in a mesh bag to protect it from any nags or pulls. You can also opt to hand wash the pillowcase, also in cold water. Do not twist or wring the silk too much, as the fibers are weaker when they are wet. Use a gentle detergent and pretreat any stains before washing.
You should wash silk pillowcases at least once a week.
Lower end options start at $21, while higher end versions can cost upwards of $89.
