PLEASE NOTE: Your pillowcase will be made-to-order to reduce waste and it provides an opportunity for our small business to be more efficient. Due to the handdyed nature of this item, your pillowcase will look very similar but not identical to the one pictured. Please allow 3 weeks for it to be made and shipped. We will update our customers if there is any delay in product shipment.
Our Sage silk pillowcase is made using 100% 19mm Charmeuse silk and peace silk thread. It is then dyed using goldenrod and minerals. It measures 17.5 x 30.5 inches long and fits most standard pillows. Silk pillowcases are more gentle on hair, help promote luminous skin and are naturally hypoallergenic.
Goldenrod is also considered a weed and wild flower. It can be used to treat head colds, inflammation and to clear the sinuses. You can make a tea out of both the leaves and the flower. If you are foraging these plants, please be aware of the bees and avoid cutting too many in the same area. Although they grow plentiful, we need to be conscious of the tiny wildlife that benefit from its gifts too. We like to cut the branches that have already fallen over. We use the same dye bath for our material, and it makes a range of colors, from vibrant yellows to deep forest greens. Depending on seasonal availability, we use organica carrot tops to create the same shades of green.
Care: Our pillowcases are handwashed several times in hypoallergenic clear soap, hung dry and then steamed before packaging. They can be dry cleaned or hand washed with cold water and mild soap then hung dry. Warm iron if needed on the silk/delicate setting.
