Silky U Silk Quilt Review

Silky U Silk Quilt
Silky U Silk Quilt

I love supporting Australian small businesses. They have a real passion for their products and have often started their business after wanting to use a specific product themselves but finding nothing suitable in the market they develop it themselves.

Silky U is a Melbourne based business where the founders wanted to buy a high quality king sized silk doona but couldn’t find one of the quality they wanted in Australia so they developed their own high quality silk filled doonas.

Silky U silk quilts are luxurious silk quilts that are super soft and airy, and comfortable to sleep under. The silk fill is 100% grade 6A long strand Mulberry silk and naturally hypoallergenic. These silk quilts can regulate body heat when cold and release heat through its breathable layers when hot.

Silky U has 2 silk quilt designs. One has a removable washable 400 thread count cotton cover. This innovative design is the only silk quilt of its kind in Australia and is definitely one of the best silk quilts in Australia. It has a hidden zipper that makes it easy to remove. Being able to remove the cover to wash it without having to wash the silk filling is a huge benefit.

The Silky U silk quilts are however a washable silk quilt and can be machine washed but do make sure you following the washing instructions they come with.

Their other design has a fine Tencel shell. Tencel is super lightweight and breathable and feels very gentle next to your skin. Being 10 times more resistant to bacterial growth because of its antibacterial properties, a silk quilt with a TENCEL cover is the best silk quilt for people with allergies or sensitive skin. The Silky U Tencel cover silk quilt is the lightest silk quilt on the market.

Silky U Silk Quilt With Tencel Cover

Each of these two Silky U silk quilts come in 5 sizes including single, double, queen, king and super king sizes with dimensions as detailed in the above comparison chart.

For each size of Silky U silk quilt there are two different warmth levels (filling weight options), namely summer and all season.

Factors To Consider When Choosing The Best Silk Bed Quilt

Sizing

Choose the best size of silk quilt for your bed and sleeping habits. I have included the dimensions of all the silk quilts featured in this guide in the above table for your convenience.

You may wish to upsize your silk quilt size compared to your bed size, that is buy a king size silk quilt for a queen size bed, to ensure you have extra overhang and adequate coverage especially if you or your partner tend to move a lot during sleep or your partner tends to pull the majority of the quilt onto their side of the bed.

Having a bit of extra overhang will also keep you warmer by not allowing cold air to sneak in under the quilt.

Silk Filling Weight (Quilt Warmth)

It is important to consider the climate where you live and how much the temperature varies between the different seasons there. Also consider whether you are wanting a quilt for a specific season only such as Winter or whether you are wanting to use the silk quilt all year round.

In some areas where the temperature can vary a lot between Summer and Winter such as Melbourne you may want to consider buying two different weight silk quilts, both a Summer silk quilt and a Winter silk quilt. Alternatively you could choose to add a mid weight silk quilt on top of your Summer weight silk quilt for Winter to save some money and storage space.

For your convenience I have listed all the silk fill weights for the silk quilts featured in this guide in the above table.

Silk Quilt Price

With silk quilts you do tend to get what you pay for. If you find a silk quilt that is significantly cheaper make sure you check what the filling silk is. Is it high grade silk or is it filled with an inferior quality of silk or silk off cuts?

Type Of Silk

I am often asked what is the best silk for a quilt and the answer to this is mulberry silk due to its high quality and durability.

Mulberry silk is produced by silkworms fed exclusively on mulberry leaves which results in the silk being soft yet strong and having a beautiful natural lustre to it.

Benefits Of Sleeping Under A Mulberry Silk Quilt Australia Wide

There are a wide variety of silk duvet benefits as listed below. After sleeping under a silk filled quilt you will never want to sleep under any different type of quilt or blanket, I know I definitely don’t want to sleep under anything other than a silk quilt anymore.

Soft, Lightweight and Breathable

Pure Mulberry silk filling is soft and lightweight. It provides the same level of warmth with only a fraction of the weight of other quilt fillings. This make sleeping under a silk quilt super comfortable and also beneficial for people with joint disorders who are unable to tolerate the weight of heavy bedding on top of them.

Being made from thin natural fibres, silk allows for better air circulation than other materials such as wool, down, cotton and synthetic materials.

Temperature Regulating

Another of the best silk quilt benefits is the fact that silk is such an incredibly breathable fabric. It is the perfect year round bedding fabric as it feels cooling in Summer and insulating in Winter. Silk quilts prevent overheating. Sleeping under a silk quilt helps you sleep comfortably throughout the night.

Hypoallergenic

Silk is naturally hypoallergenic meaning it has a natural resistance to dust mites, mould, bacteria and many other allergens. A silk quilt has less potential for irritation than quilts filled with other materials and is the most soothing bedding choice for people with irritable skin. This is one of the most significant silk quilt benefits for people who suffer with allergies, asthma or skin issues.

Reduced Chemical Exposure

Silk is produced from domesticated silk worms that are bred in captivity. These silk worms have no predators. This means that no chemical pesticides or herbicides are required to protect them. This is unlike many other textiles that have been exposed to chemicals.

Silk quilts do not have the chemical odour common in synthetic quilts which can lead to respiratory problems and allergic reactions, like sneezing and coughing in those sensitive to chemicals.

Easy To Maintain

Silk quilts do need some special care but they are relatively easy to maintain and keep in good condition.

As mentioned earlier silk naturally repels dirt, dust mites, mildew, moths and odours so you don’t have to wash them as frequently as other quilts. You can spot clean any stains on silk quilts or if you do need to wash them occasionally follow the washing instructions that come with your silk quilt and then preferably air dry it.

Do not dry clean silk quilts using trichloroethylene as this can affect their natural properties.

Cover your silk quilt with a removable cover so you don’t need to wash it as often.

Silky U Silk Quilt Care Instructions

Longevity

Silk quilts do cost more than lower quality budget quilts however with proper care they will last longer and in a better condition than other quilts.

Where To Buy Silk Quilts Australia Wide

I tend to do my silk quilt research online and then also buy silk quilts online too. It is so much quicker and easier to check silk quilt dimensions, silk fill weights and silk quilt prices online than it is to drive around to various different bedding stores all over the city to do this research in person.

By shopping online I also avoid the traffic, avoid the search for parking and avoid the crowds. In my opinion shopping online is the most convenient method.

I hope this best silk quilt 2024 Australia buying guide helps you with your best silk quilt research enabling you to identify and buy the best silk quilt Australia wide to match your individual needs and wants.
