Handmade Silk Pillowcases

In line with government directives Roisin Cross Silks fabric shop will remain closed until further notice.  During this closure our silk pillowcases are reduced by 25%  and can still be ordered online.

Due to popular demand, in September 2019 we released a collection of handmade silk pillowcases.

May 2020, Irish Times  featured Roisin Cross Silks  ‘…..silk pillowcases that come all boxed up and ready to gift. The boxed pillowcases would make a fine gift for a friend who might be spending a little more time in bed than usual. Silk pillowcases are smooth to the touch, less abrasive than poly/cotton and are said to be kind to hair and skin…’

These silk pillowcases are made in Ireland by Roisin Cross Silks. They are made in the traditional shape and are 75 cm x 50 cm in size. Silk weight is measured in mommies. Industry standards indicate 17 momme are ideal for silk pillowcases. Our silk pillowcases are 19 momme.

Silk pillowcases are a great alternative for those who may have sensitive skin or intolerance’s to other fabrics.
