Silk is also naturally hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant, making it perfect for bubs with allergies.
Q: How do I care for my Silk products?
A: All Silky Tots products are made from the highest quality silk to ensure longevity, but they will last longer with proper care. It is important to detergent that specifies use on silk/wool as even ‘natural’ detergents can contain enzymes that can breakdown the silk proteins, causing it to weaken. These detergents can be picked up in all major supermarkets, our favourite is the ecostore eucalyptus wool and delicates wash (see here). Cold delicate machine wash with a splash of detergent, gently squeeze out the excess water before hanging to dry.
Q: Will sleeping on Silk stop hormonal hair loss?

The silk will however help to minimise the hair loss and allow the new hair to grow in much quicker, when the new hair does start to grow.
