What is Momme Weight

Momme count or momme weight, pronounced ‘moe-me’ is a unit for measuring the weight of silk. The higher the momme count the thicker the fabric, the lower the count the thinner and less durable the fabric, 12mm to 19mm is a standard range and 19mm to 22mm is considered high quality and best for silk bedding. OBS recommends that when shopping for silk sheets only buy from retailers that are available to answer your questions intelligently by phone. It is important when buying silk that you only buy from smaller retailers that source silk from manufactures that produce consistent high quality silk.
