We spend around one-third of our life sleeping. And as the weather gets colder and the nights get darker, chances are you’re finding yourself crawling into bed earlier each day. You might think you’ve already created the ultimate sleep space with cosy sheets, a fluffy doona and cloud-like pillows, but have you considered your pillowcase?

Silk finishes can help to smooth frizz-prone hair and reduce the crinkles and creases sometimes left on our face when we wake up. The cool-touch fabric is also a favourite for hot sleepers.

Slip

Brisbane brand Slip promises “anti-sleep-crease and anti-bedhead” results with its best-selling pillowcase. Long-fibre mulberry silk gives this design its signature lustre. And an invisible zip closure means your pillow won’t slide around inside. There’s a bunch of colours to mix and match with your favourite bedding.

The Sheet Society

The Sheet Society uses sandwashed silk with a soft matte finish to make its Fleur pillowcases. A deep gusset promises to keep your pillow in place and the 19 momme (the standard of measuring silk) weight means these cases will wash and wear for many nights to come. The Melbourne brand delivers matching sleep masks and silk scrunchies if you want to go the whole nine yards for beauty sleep.

Flipkip

If your bedroom aesthetics are all about linen but you want to try a silk pillowcase, Flipkip has you covered. The local brand offers dual-sided cases made with 100 per cent organic mulberry silk on one side and 100 per cent organic linen on the other. There are currently eight colours to choose from.

Cozo

If you’re looking to ditch your cotton pillowcases but haven’t found a suitable vegan alternative, Cozo is it. The Melbourne brand makes its silky styles from eucalyptus tencel lyocell, which is crafted from ethically sourced wood pulp. The cases are also infused with eucalyptol, an anti-inflammatory compound found in eucalyptus, which offers antibacterial properties to help protect skin from acne-causing bacteria.

Sleepy Girl

Sleepy Girl doesn’t discriminate when it comes to your preference of pillow shape and size. The brand offers cases for standard, boomerang and body pillows for all kinds of sleepers. It uses 100 per cent mulberry silk, which is soft and breathable. And there’s a range of colours available. Plus, you can score discounts when you bundle your order.

Morgan & Finch

Morgan & Finch uses 16 momme mulberry silk to make its shiny pillowcases. There are nine colours to choose from and the brand fits standard size pillows. Silk is known to be hypoallergenic, which makes a case like this a good choice for asthma and allergy sufferers.

The Silk Store

The Silk Store makes pillowcases in jewel-tone colours to add to your bed. Based on the Gold Coast, the brand uses an envelope-style case and 100 per cent pure mulberry silk. The soft and buttery pieces are sold individually, so you can mix and match as you wish.
