Why Silk Pajamas Are So Beneficial For Sleep

When you’re chasing a good night’s sleep, the choice of your sleep attire plays a crucial role. Silk pajamas stand out, thanks to their luxurious feel and look. But when you search beyond mere comfort, silk pajamas come along with numerous other benefits. 

We’ll dive into all the reasons why silk pajamas are so beneficial for sleep, helping you unlock the secrets to a restful and rejuvenated night. 


Silk pajamas: beneficial for a good night’s sleep

Silk pajamas are perfect for anyone who wants to experience the ultimate level of comfort when sleeping. However, did you know they can actually help you fall asleep at night?

When compared to other pajamas – namely cotton or polyester varieties – silk pajamas have been credited for boosting restful sleep all night long. There are eighteen different amino acids found within the protein of silk fabrics, nicknamed ‘the sleep factor’ due to the unmatched level of comfort provided. 

But it’s not just going to improve the overall quality of sleep, it’s also been found that it can make it easier for you to fall asleep in the first place. Thanks to unmatched softness and the ability to calm any nerves at night, you’ll be able to enjoy that well-rested feeling every night when you don silk pajamas.

Silk pajamas: your nightly skincare routine’s best friend

  • Hypoallergenic

It’s well-known that silk is a hypoallergenic material thanks to its soft fabric and the resistance to dust mites, mildew and bacteria. This is just one of the many reasons silk pajamas are so beneficial for sleep – but it’s an important one, especially for those with sensitive skin. 

More so, silk pajamas are often free of potentially harmful chemicals that can be found in fabrics like polyester. Meaning that they’ll reduce chances of any skin irritation whatsoever.

“The best SILK. I have had to wear silk my entire life, due to a neural condition. Until lately I made due with what I could afford, but was ashamed of the poor quality. Tara Sartoria is the first company I have found that provides high quality, since my mom stopped sewing for me 40 years ago.”

  • Anti-aging

If worn regularly for sleeping, silk pajamas can be incredibly beneficial for anti-aging. Unlike other fabrics, silk allows the skin to retain its moisture. You won’t have to worry about your skin drying out or removing natural oils while you sleep. This is great for those worried about the signs of aging – silk pajamas slow this process when compared to other sleep alternatives.

As well as reducing any irritation caused by friction on the skin, silk pajamas can reduce the development of wrinkles by preserving natural oils on the surface of the skin. It’s a benefit that counts for those of us who want to retain youthful, glowing skin!

“I can't believe how soft this silk feels on my skin. It is so comfortable to wear and I feel so luxurious and fancy in it!”

~ Erik


  • Reducing inflammation

On the topic of softer skin – if someone suffers from inflamed skin such as eczema, silk can be wholly beneficial for this reason. Silk fabric works to deter dust mites and other potentially harmful bacteria from building up. Which means silk is unlikely to make any inflammation worse, unlike harsher fabrics may do. 

Silk pajamas have also been known to reduce inflammation, promote treatment methods for skin conditions and even help with respiratory conditions such as asthma. Because with no build up of dust mites? Things get a lot less complicated! 

“Whether I’m lounging or sleeping, these pajamas provide the ultimate indulgence in sleepwear. While they may come at a premium price, the quality and luxury they offer make them worth every penny.”

~ Mike


The unseen benefits of silk pajamas: temperature regulation

Thanks to the moisture-repelling properties in the natural, breathable fibers of mulberry silk, silk pajamas are able to keep your temperature regulated while you sleep. Meaning whether you’re experiencing hot or cold temperatures, silk will work to keep you the ideal temperature for your sleep. 

Silk itself is known as a natural thermal regulator, meaning it’ll keep you warm during the winter and cool during the summer.

Consider wearing silk pajamas to bed if you struggle with temperature regulation or if you find yourself waking up at night due to the temperatures. 


“I love wearing this to bed! It keeps me cool and helps me sleep. It's very well made.”
