That’s why the Blissy Team is super excited to introduce to you our first collection for kids, Blissy Junior! The Blissy Junior Collection includes 100% natural silk pillowcases in toddler and youth sizes. The collection includes 3 classic kid colors and 4 fun modern prints.
Kids love our silk pillowcases just as much—if not more—than adults! Not only is Blissy’s 22-momme 100% mulberry silk shiny and attractive to kids, it’s also super soft to the touch.
With Blissy Junior, your little one will cherish the soothing feel of silk against their cheek as they sleep.
A Silk Pillowcase Can Help Your Child Sleep Better
We thought—why should adults be the only ones to sleep more soundly? As important as it is for adults to get enough quality sleep, it’s even more important for kids.
Children ages 3-5 need 10 to 13 hours of sleep each day. Studies have shown that kids who get enough sleep have better attention, behavior, memory, and overall health than kids who don't.
Young kids are spending around half their lives with their heads on their pillow. So it's important to consider the fabric of your child’s pillowcase.
Silk regulates your child’s body temperature
Silk can help your child sleep more soundly, as it has unique body temperature regulating qualities. Silk is what caterpillars create their cocoons from, after all. The cocoon fibers need to keep the caterpillar warm when it's cold and cool when it's warm so it can emerge as a healthy young butterfly!
It’s the same idea for our little ones. Silk keeps them cool in the summer and warm in the winter. This helps them get the quality sleep they need. This is why silk is the healthiest fiber for kids to sleep on as they grow.
If a comfortable night’s sleep isn’t reason enough to opt for Blissy silk, consider the effects fabric quality can have on your child’s skin.
Why Hypoallergenic Silk Is the Best Choice for Your Child
Skin allergies are the most common allergies in children. The most common skin allergies are contact dermatitis, hives, and eczema. Eczema is so common, about 1 in every 10 kids will develop it.
Allergic reactions happen when your child’s body negatively reacts to certain substances. Dust mites and dyes are two of the top allergens that can cause an allergic breakout on your child’s ultra-delicate skin.
Blissy silk is pest-resistant
Dust mites thrive in fabrics with high porosity including cotton and linen. Silk has a much tighter weave and smoother fiber structure than other common bedding materials. This makes it naturally pest-resistant, repelling bed bugs and dust mites.
That means your little one’s skin is safe and less likely to exhibit allergic reactions. Your child will be more comfortable and sleep easier on pure silk than any other fabric.
Blissy dyes are certified safe, eco-friendly, and non-toxic
The other culprit for skin allergies is dye found in fabrics. While bedding comes in many colors and prints attractive to children, it's not all guaranteed to be safe and non-toxic.
Skin allergies aren’t the only thing to worry about with fabrics containing unsafe dyes. Harmful dyes used to manufacture textiles run off into our water, polluting it. These dyes eventually end up back in our food chain and on our dinner plates. Yikes!
So how do you make sure you’re buying fabrics that are safe and nontoxic? Be on the lookout for the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Label. This means the fabric has been certified safe, eco-friendly, and non-toxic.
STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is the world's most trusted label for textiles. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety. It is globally standardized and goes through rigorous testing by independent test institutes.
All Blissy products carry the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Label. But we are especially proud to carry this label for our Blissy Junior Collection. Your little one is too precious to deserve anything less than the ultimate in safety and comfort.
