How is SmartSilk™ bedding different from down and synthetic bedding?
There are ten advantages to SmartSilk™ that are not associated with down and synthetic bedding. The overall benefit is that SmartSilk™ protects both the person and the bed. The differentiating factors of SmartSilk™ bedding include:
- Certified asthma and allergy friendly
- A natural barrier to dust mites, allergens and pet dander
- Chemical free
- Natural moisture wicking properties

- Made of breathable materials
- No cold air pockets
- Machine washable and dryable
- Does not take on body odor

How can your comforter keep me warm all year round?
The SmartSilk™ comforter is filled with Tussah silk. This wild and strong silk has temperature regulation properties that keep your body comfortable all year long. Although the comforter may be light, it will keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
How do your products wick away moisture?
Smartsilk™ is all natural and breathable, allowing air to circulate. This prevents moisture from building up, making it more absorbent than traditional bedding. SmartSilk™ products expel humidity into the air and wick away moisture naturally.
How do your products work as a barrier to dust mites and other allergens?
Microscopic dust mites thrive in warm and humid environments. They produce allergy-inducing substances in your bed and thrive on human skin flakes and animal dander. With their temperature regulation and moisture wicking properties, SmartSilk™ products actually repel dust mites, pet dander and other allergens.
Are SmartSilk™ products laboratory tested?
In order to be certified asthma & allergy friendly™, SmartSilk™ was tested and approved by several labs. View more details directly on our website at www.smartsilk.com
How do I clean my SmartSilk™ products?
When it’s time for a wash, SmartSilk™ products are scientifically tested and proven to be machine washable in cold water and dryable on low. Use the delicate cycle and detergent for delicate fabrics. SmartSilk™ bedding could be removed from the dryer while still slightly damp. The bedding will dry out very quickly because SmartSilk™ does not retain moisture. If placed in the sun, the silk will turn yellow. Do not use bleach or fabric softener. Oxyclean can be sprayed on prior to washing. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America recommends that you wash your SmartSilk™ products every 8 weeks, which is their protocol. Cold water wash is sufficient as the dust mites are not present. Since our products do not take on body odor, washing frequency can be tailored to your own personal preference.
What is your product warranty and do you have a return policy?
All SmartSilk™ products come with our 60-day satisfaction money back guarantee. We also offer our 10-year warranty from the date of purchase that covers manufacturer's defects but does not cover normal wear and tear. Washing and care instructions must be followed
