Natural comfort and luxury with Gingerlily silk bedding

With the colder winter nights now behind us, it's time to think about lighter weight bedding for our homes.  If you're looking to invest in some new bedding as part of your spring makeover, have you thought about the benefits of silk?

Gingerlily offers a stunning range of bedding, linen and nightwear, and not only will it add a sense of elegance and luxury to your bedroom, but silk also has lots of health and beauty benefits too.

Silk is 100% natural and due to it's protein structure, it is uniquely hypoallergenic.  Studies have shown it effectively decreases skin and respiratory problems caused by airborne allergens and mites.

Temperature regulator

Because of the super fine and long fibres, silk helps stabilise and regulated your body temperature.  So silk bedding is particularly helpful for young children, those who experience night sweating and for all of us on hot sticky nights.  A stable body temperature will result in a much more restful night's sleep.

Smooth skin

The very tightly woven smooth fibres keep skin hydrated by keeping your naturally-forming moisture close to the skin.  It's perfect for those suffering from dry or flaky skin.  Hydrated skin cells are plumper meaning you will have more luminous skin and less wrinkles.

Silky hair

Beauty experts have long extolled the virtues of silk for the hair.  It can help keep it soft; smooth; moisturised and free of knots.  Your hair will slide on a silk pillowcase rather than bunching up, so it's much less damaging and will result in sleek locks.  Sleeping on silk may also help keep your 'salon-do' for longer.

So really, with all these benefits what's not to love?  Not only that, but the stylish range from Gingerlily will help create a calm, luxurious and tranquil bedroom that you'll enjoy spending time in.

  1. Silk i s v good for frizzy hair too apparently if I ever have a blow dry I sleep that night on a silky underskirt wrapped round my pillow!

  2. your images just want me to cuddle up and go to sleep now!

  3. I totally agree with this, I had a Silk Pillow and it genuinely does make a difference to your hair which is perfect considering I used to look like the Hair Bear had come and messed my hair up in the night!! :-)

  4. Ooooh, I would love silky hair :-)

  5. I wake up with dreads every morning, so I like the idea of it giving me silky rapunzel like tresses!

  6. Temperature regulator sounds like an amazing feature. I didn't even know something like this existed, but I'm forever going from freezing cold to boiling hot, so this is definitely a feature I'll be looking out for in the future x

  7. I want to leap into your pics for a snooze - and if it sorts my hair out too.... ;-)

  8. I have been meaning to get silk pillows for ages as they are supposed to be much better for healthy skin and hair but I never get round to it. Now I have seen those mist silk pillows I think it is time to get purchasing!

  9. Ohh I have never even considered silk before, it made me think of black sheets and dirty old men, not at all how your post looks! lol Mich x

  10. Heh heh heh I was just about to comment to say I thought black silk sheets were more your bag and then I read Michelle's comment!!!

  11. Fancy bedding, how decadent. Not that I ever need an excuse to buy more bedding :D

  12. Oh my goodness - I just want to DIVE IN! I never consider silk but that all looks too amazing for words so now I might need to x

  13. Thank you so much for linking up lovely. That bedding looks like the sleep paradise!

  14. Just looking at that great duvet makes me feel like going back to bed, it's so important to get the temp right to avoid waking up boiling or freezing. #loveyourhome

  15. I now want a silk pillowcase! #loveyourhome
