What does 6A grade silk mean?
Silk is graded on an A, B, C scale. Each letter referencing a different type of silk product quality. 'A' being the finest, highest quality silk product and 'C' being the lowest. The additional number takes the grading a step further, '6A' being better quality than '5A'. So when you see a silk product that is graded 6A, you can be sure that it is the highest quality for that specific type of silk.
What is 22-Momme?
Momme is a unit of measurement, much like thread count for cotton. You can’t use thread count to measure silk because silk fibres are much thinner in diameter, so momme is used instead.
Momme describes the silk’s weight and density. Higher momme measurements mean there are more strands of silk per 100 yards of fabric, so the silk is higher quality and more durable. For example, If the weight of the fabric is 19 pounds, the momme measurement will be '19-momme'.
Momme measurements range from 11-momme to 25-momme. However, 25-Momme is much too heavy for clothes or bedding and is usually used for homeware such as curtains.
22-Momme is the ideal momme measurement for the best quality silk bedding or clothing.
