Surround Yourself With Smartsilk!

I love to crawl into a wonderfully made bed each night. I have also been known to slip back into bed at some point in the afternoon for a little nap. It's healthy and it feels good. For a healthier rest, wrap your body, pillows, and mattress in Smartsilk! It alleviates symptoms related to asthma and allergies, skin irritations, fibromyalgia and eases the effects of night sweats and chills that may occur during menopause or while undergoing chemotherapy. Smartsilk enhances your sleep and your quality of life by surrounding you with natural fibers that are proven to heal. Smartsilk is the first all natural bedding to be certified asthma & allergy friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America and the Asthma Society of Canada. This luxurious bedding is scientifically proven to be manufactured from materials that do not contain chemicals at levels known to trigger asthma and allergy symptoms. That can mean instant relief if you wake up with itchy, watery eyes or suffer from allergic skin reactions, especially if your old bedding is to blame. It is naturally fire retardant without the use of harsh or harmful chemicals so you can rest easy, knowing you're not breathing in harmful chemicals or allowing your delicate skin to absorb them while you slumber. Silk resists odor, mold, and mildew. It wicks moisture away from the body leaving you comfortable and dry throughout the night. It's natural and it breathes, and it's an effective barrier against allergens, pet dander, and dust mites.
We were sent a complete bed set which includes a mattress protector, duvet, and two pillowcases. When you order, you add in the number of pillow protectors you need. The Smartsilk Allergy Duvet is loftier than my all season down. It's also looks more streamlined than down, which can look a little lumpy. It's filled with silk and it has a really nice weight to it! The extra fabric sample that was sent allowed me to get a better look at what's inside. It looks like cotton candy on the inside. The finely spun silk is layered and then sandwiched between pure cotton. The cotton shell has a tight weave and it also has a very nice finish. The duvet has more fill than the silk filled mattress protector and pillowcases.
I put it to the test with Sam, my youngest. He is always slipping away before I can wash his hands. Luckily, Smartsilk can be washed and dried! I wanted to see how well it would clean up after a few minutes alone with him. Spaghetti. Scared yet? I was. After a few splatters and smears, I took my Smartsilk and covered it with a stain treatment. I used The Laundress for my test. After letting it set for about ten minutes, I washed it. The stains disappeared completely. Some stains needed a little extra scrubbing, but it all came out in the end. So if you purchase the duvet and use it without a cover, you should be pretty safe!

The hypoallergenic pillow protectors have a biodegradable water repellent lining that will insure the extended life of your pillow. They are also available in standard, queen, and king sizes. The mattress protectors fit all mattress depths from 7-21 inches which will help keep your mattress from shifting. The biodegradable water repellent non-woven lining  protects the mattress from stains and provides you with all the benefits of Smartsilk. The sides (mattress depth) are also quilted with Smartsilk silk-fill for extra protection! The duvet and mattress protector are available in crib through king size so everyone in your family can enjoy the benefits of healthy bedding! You can save 10% if you order a set! These sets make wonderful wedding gifts. Just be sure to order one for yourself too!
Disclosure: I was sent a complete set in order to complete this review. No monetary compensation received.
