Silk charmeuse pajamas are one of my favorite things. I love the way silk feels on my skin and I love the flattering way silk garments drape on my body.

For centuries silk has been regarded as the worlds most luxurious fabric.  Made from unraveling the cocoon of the Mulberry Silk worm.  Each cocoon is made from (approximately) a 1 mile long strand of a natural protein fiber which is woven to make fabric.  The triangular, light refracting structure of the fiber is what gives silk it’s shimmery lustrous appearance.

Today, natural silk had been replaced by less expensive synthetic silk.  But for me, nothing is like real silk charmeuse.  Silk charmeuse is the most luxurious of all silk fabrics.  Silk charmeuse is not the same as silk satin.  Silk satin is not as soft and luxurious as charmeuse.  Silk Charmeuse is also called “crepe back satin”.

Many people think silk is a delicate fabric that needs to be hand washed.  Silk is one of the strongest natural fibers.  I throw my silk pajamas and nighties in the washer & dryer (on the delicate cycle).  Some of my silk sleepwear is

over 15 years old!  With time the shimmery silk charmeuse garments tend to get a sand washed look to them, but a good ironing (inside out) on medium high heat brings back the shine.  Or you can dry clean your silk pajamas and they will stay new looking forever.

This review is from: Purchased this as a gift. It is buuitefal. Has a shimmer/sparkle to the finish that doesn’t show in picture. Color is great, very rich looking and feeling material. Picture does not look nearly as nice. Wow, I was surprised and pleased and my son’s girlfriend loves it. Glad I purchased this and would buy again!!
