- Slippery smooth texture reduces friction and snagging, preventing hair breakage.
- Softer texture of silk means less dents and unsightly ridges in your hair.
- Gentler hold prevents tension which can lead to compression headaches or hair loss at the front of the head.
Look stylish and treat your hair at the same time.

The use of silk is one of the best kept secrets in the beauty industry which is down to a heap of fantastic benefits for both our skin and hair:
Silk keeps hair in tip top condition
Pura Silk pillowcases are known for their super smooth surface which drastically reduces friction between your hair and the pillow. Cotton pillowcases cause hair to pull, tangle and break throughout the night as you toss and turn. Sleeping on our high quality silk will protect your luscious locks in turn reducing breakage and eliminating the dreaded bedhead.
Silk maintains skin hydration
Do you spend lots of your hard earned cash on expensive skin care regimes just to wake up in the morning and they haven't really made a difference? Sadly, this is common and is likely due to sleeping on a cotton pillowcase. Silk absorbs significantly less moisture from our skin as we sleep, when compared to cotton, which draws moisture away from our skin. Pura Silk allows for retention of essential nutrients whilst keeping your skincare products exactly where they should be, therefore giving them more of a chance to work!
Silk is gentle on the skin
One unique benefit of mulberry silk is the fact it is 100% natural and completely odourless. Silk is the most hypoallergenic of all fabrics thanks to its natural protein structure, making it the perfect choice for those who may suffer with eczema or other skin allergies. Since silk naturally repels bed bugs, fungus and dust mites, it also doesn't harbour any nasties which means it wont clog your pores and has been proven to actively reduce acne breakouts.
Silk is temperature regulating
Pura Silk pillowcases have natural temperature regulating properties which enables you to keep your body temperature throughout the night. With its cool-to-cheek feeling our silk helps you maintain a comfortable sleep without the need to flip your pillow. Furthermore being a naturally breathable fabric the proteins in silk will emit any sweat it absorbs meaning they are far more hygienic than the cotton alternative.

Hand Washing Instructions:
Handwashing your silk is absolutely the best method in preserving your silks softness and keeping it in tip top condition.
Dry cleaning is a great alternative.
Hand wash in lukewarm water with a gentle PH neutral detergent (preferably one formulated for silk - check the labels). Please do not soak, rub or scrub.
Wash the silk slowly and gently through the soapy water for just a few minutes.
Rinsing can take a bit of time but thoroughly rinse out the soap and refrain from wringing it out afterwards as this can damage the silk. Rather roll the silk gently into a dry, clean towel to extract the water.
Dry flat out of direct sunlight.
Machine Washing Instructions:
If you are not confident in hand washing you can wash your silk on a low temperature, delicate cycle. Be sure to follow the simple guide below:
- Wash like colours together.
- Silk should always be washed separately in a SILK-ONLY load.
- We recommend all silk items should be washed in mesh laundry bags using a gentle PH neutral detergent (preferably one formulated for silk - check the labels).
- Avoid the fabric softener! It is really not necessary for silk. It leaves behind a coating on your silk that with repeated use makes it impenetrable to water. Therefore reducing the quality.
- Silk dries very quickly. Hang the silk to dry, out of direct sunlight.
- Tumble drying is not recommended.
- Do not machine wash any higher than 30.
Can I iron my silk?
Ironing isn't always necessary, however if you want to iron then always iron on the lowest heat setting. Some irons may even have a silk setting.
- Always iron inside out.
- We recommend placing a press cloth in between the silk and the iron.
- Focus on steam and not heat, gently press the cloth with the iron and remove quickly, repeat over the area.
- Leave the silk to completely cool before removing from the board, this will prevent making more creases.
