Silky Tots are committed to bringing a touch of magic to sleep time with their 100% mulberry silk products.
Silk is naturally kinder to skin & hair, reducing friction whilst also maintaining hydration, not stripping skin or hair of its natural oils. Silk is hypoallergenic, breathable, temperature regulating and uninhabitable by dust mites (recommended for eczema & asthma) giving you and your little ones the gentlest sleep possible.
Their core product, the Silk Cot Slip, was created out of necessity when their founder, Nikki, continually found clumps of hair in her daughter’s cot after she slept. Searching for a solution, Nikki discovered that silk was the answer!
Sleeping on silk eliminates friction, allowing delicate skin and hair to glide across the pillow, sheet or bed surface and Silk is non-absorbent so doesn’t strip skin or hair of its natural oils. The benefits of Silk have been known and used to care for skin & hair for hundreds of years, but Silky Tots is the first company (worldwide) to make these benefits accessible and safe for babies and children to use.
With Silky Tots you can be confident that you’re getting all the benefits of the softest 22 momme silk, naturally giving you the comfort and safety you’re looking for as a new mum.
