Default Heard of the Blissy pillowcases, etc ?

My sis email me about these pillowcases---never heard of them but we do try not to watch ads. Had to check them out----very expensive and the mulberry silk they are made of is too expensive also. Guess I will stick to satin. However not bought much or priced satin in a few years and it might be too expensive now. Sis knows I always like to know what is being sold though.

In my experience with silk, it isn't very durable and requires hand washing. Too high maintenance for me.

I make the polyester satin. I wash them in a laundry bag and put them in the washer.

I"ve been thinking about using satin/silk pillowcases because of my hair. When you have a curly mop on your head, you have to do something to keep it from frizzing up. I've heard these help. I just like my cotton pillowcases so I haven't decided yet.

Use your regular pillowcase and wear a sleep cap. Sure helps. I used to purchase them at Walmart, etc. but now make my own. Much more durable. Made it out of silky polyester knit and it is comfortable and does a great job. Just a thought.

That's what I'm doing now. I just find it kind of weird feeling to wear the cap to bed. I made mine out of quiling cotton lined with silk.
