The Momme weight of silk describes the weight of 100 yards of silk, 45 inches wide, in pounds. So, if a fabric is listed with a momme weight of 8mm, it means that 100 yards of the fabric weighs 8 pounds. Many silk clothing items will be around 8mm in weight. Higher quality silks tend to be 14, 15 or 16mm or higher. Our Silk pillowcases a have a momme of 22 ensuring their high quality and great feel.
Normally the more momme silk has the longer it will last.
