Silk Duvet - Warm
Real luxury is always comes from nature - treat yourself to the ultimate luxury of a Wild Tussah silk duvet.
This luxurious Valeria Home silk duvet is manufactured to the highest standards, using the best 100% Wild Tussah Silk padding, encased in a premium, extra fine fabric cover made of 100% natural fibers - 100% Cotton Batiste.
Made with 100% Pure Wild Tussah Silk Padding 450 g/m2 cased in 100% Cotton Batiste, this Valeria Home Duvet is a long term investment in your quality of sleep.
The Silk Duvet - Warm has equivalent to approximative 9-13 Tog thermal insulation. It is comfortable for bedroom temperatures between 17 and 21℃.
We used three 150 g/m2 layers of Carded Silk Padding inside. It is the perfect balance between air permeability and thermal insulation. This structure is perfect for Spring, Autumn and Winter nights.
Why choose a Valeria Home Silk Duvet made with Silk Padding?
We are using segments of 5-7 cm of silk yarns, that are perfectly individualized (stick one fiber to the other). These are mechanically laid in a pad that has volume and a lot of air trapped inside; that means in the end - very effective moisture management and very effective thermoregulating capabilities of each Valeria Home silk product.
The pad is 100% natural silk, no artificial substances.
Our Valeria Home Silk Collection is totally different than the silk bedding products made with mass of long silk fibers which are migrating and agglomerating and have a very low index of comfort.
More than that, discontinuous silk production (pad silk) does not need an intact cocoon to start from.
In partnership with selected local manufacturers, it has been created and developed a particular kind of production in which the moth is set free and is able to leave the cocoon. Such cocoon, is used as a source of raw material of discontinuous silk (100% CRUELTY FREE).
Instead, the continuous silk production process requires larvae killing before they pierce out the cocoon once the mutation has taken place, through the secretion of a corrosive liquid that damages the continuous wire.
Silk. The incredible fibre
Silk is a unique and exclusive fibre.
It isolates from heat and cold, makes an excellent thermal insulation, absorbs excess of humidity and quickly releases into the environment.
It does an excellent job of thermoregulating, and it is exceptional in its breathability.
Silk is a light, elastic, resistant material, not prone to pilling, and it can adapt its own structure to the morphology of the human body. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic, antibacterial, perfectly compatible with the human skin, antioxidant and anti-aging.
The delicious sense of comfort offered by products made with Carded Silk Pad derives from the unique characteristics of the silk raw material potentiated by cutting-edge technological processing.
Its advantages include:
• Health benefits
• Extraordinary thermoregulation
• Excellent breathability
• Excellent water and water-vapor absorption capacity without causing a “wet” sensation
• Capacity to release excess moisture to the environment
• Excellent ability to adapt structurally to the morphology of the human body and to the design of the product
• Perfect compatibility with human skin naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial
• Anti-oxidant and anti-aging properties
• Naturalness and eco-sustainability of the raw materials and production process
• Low flammability no flame-propagating, does not melt and stick to skin when exposed to fire.
We have replaced the chemical dust mite treatment with Terpeshield, a natural mixture of pure essential oils that ensure protection and aromatherapy. Geraniol and Linalool are natural terpenes found in pure essential oils obtained from plants by steam distillation.
Anti-insecticide and anti-fungal role of Terpeshield:
- Drives insects and dust mites away - Prevents the appearance of fungi and mold
- Neutralizes bad odors
The Terpeshield aromatherapy:
- Diminishes the stress and increases focus and alertness
- Takes away muscle pain, migrain, indigestion and inflammation
- Extremely efficient against insomnia, anxiety and palpitations
The Geraniol and Linalool can be found in fruits, vegetables, spices or plants as geranium, lemongrass, lily of the valley, lavender, etc. The washing tests carried out in the lab showed that no active residues were found into the washing water or the rinsing water in which the textile products are Terpeshield treated with.
The Terpeshield treatment does not contain phthalates, permethrins (usually known as Nix), endocrine disruptors or other insecticides or chemical pesticides. Moreover, the treatment process does not consume thermal energy.
The multi-layer structure
We are using bates of carded silk that are wave-shaped and multi-layer arranged. This way, we are able to prevent the overcrowding or the migration of the silk inside the product. The silk layers present a density of 100g/sqm, the winter duvets containing three layers.
Fiber-proof cotton fabric
The oxygen-bleached cotton fabric means less allergies
The cotton fabric is not coated (no polymer layer is applied) in order to prevent the migration of the fibers. The cotton fabric we are using prevents the fibers to migrate inside the fabric (dense fabric made out of very fine yarns). Moreover, mechanical processes are also prevented. The lack of this coating enables the air and moisture flow, significantly minimizing the perspiration.
Caring for your silk duvet:
We would recommend gentle dry cleaning - spot cleaning only. Do not tumble dry. Use the duvet only with a duvet cover. Hygienically we would also recommend, when the weather is appropriate, expose the products to sunlight in order to wick away the natural moisture appeared overnight. Furthermore, it should be taken into account that the UV light is a high-power disinfectant.
