Registry Obsession: Silk Linens

  |   By Alison McGill

Silk blankets from Vancouver's Manito Silk.

Once you’ve tried silk bedding you simply will not go back—it’s so luxurious and lovely. Manito is a brand of silk linens that recently crossed my desk, a pair of gorgeous pillow cases to be exact and laying my head on their silken goodness every night for the past week has been a dream. A few things I learned about silk linen from Manito:

• Silk bedding is healthy and all-natural. This means our bodies response to it is batter than synthetic or feathers. AND it’s hypo-allergic.

• Silk is cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It keeps your body at a constant temperature all year round.

• Silk is the strongest natural fiber and is comparable to steel in utensil strength!

When shopping for silk linens the important thing to look for is momme count. A weight of 12 pounds or higher is an optimum count (Manito Silk boasts an ultra-luxe 22 momme count!). Offering everything from sheets, to duvets, duvet covers, blankets and accessories, the Vancouver-based Manito really is a one-stop, silk linen shop. They offer easy online shopping and ship across Canada and into the US. LOVE!
