If you really want to elevate your everyday, just swap your ratty tees that you sleep in with fabulous silk pajamas. I know what you’re thinking. Silk? To sleep in? I don’t feel like hand washing my pajamas, or have to get them dry cleaned. That’s madness! It is. But have you ever heard of machine-washable silk? I was introduced to this fabric with my Lunya pajama set and it’s so wonderful. All you do is machine wash on cold, delicate cycle and in a lingerie bag, and let it hang dry. That’s it. Silk is a really great fabric to sleep in because it’s breathable, temperature regulating and hypoallergenic. It’s super delicate and feels oh so luxurious. But these washable silk options will really up your pajama game.
These also make for a really wonderful gift. I feel like sleepwear and robes are one of those things people don’t splurge on for themselves. If you have a bridal shower, or baby shower to go to, or just a friends birthday, silk sleepwear makes for a really fabulous gift. Sure, the price point is a bit higher than your average everyday cotton pajamas, but they are so worth it to make your life feel a little more elevated!

How To Care For Washable Silk Pajamas?
There are really only two things to keep in mind when washing your new washable silk pajamas. And it’s to always use a mesh lingerie bag when you wash. Period. And for your washing machine settings, always on cold and delicate cycle. I have done mine on normal and it’s fine, but delicate is best. To dry, simply line dry. Sure it’s going to be a tad wrinkly but once you put it on and move around, it usually loosens up the wrinkles. If you really want to have perfectly smooth pajamas, you can run a steamer over them super quickly. I have never done this, because they are simply pajamas!
We’re not just stopping at silk sleepwear. I swear by my silk sleeping masks. A silk eye mask feels so amazing against your face when you sleep and are more gentle on your skin and eyelashes. I also have made the switch to a silk pillowcase. A high quality silk pillowcase will help to prevent wrinkles. Plus, it’s so silky soft and feels nice and cool against your skin. And lastly, silk hair ties. These are great as they are less likely to leave a kink in your hair. And don’t forget! You’ll need a mesh lingerie bag to wash your new washable silk to keep it looking its best.
