Why silk travel sheets ?
As young millennials are encouraged to explore and experience the sites and cultures the world has to offer, the world is continuously creating ways to make their travels as efficient as possible. As for the more budgeting, adventurous travelers, silk travel sheets are one of the new increasingly popular items on every travelers packing list. Many companies have jumped on board to supply a variety of different sheets all with slightly different materials. After researching and reviewing the possibilities, I came to the conclusion that the most influential brands of travel liners make their products from silk to ensure the best quality to the touch and for temperature regulating purposes.
My friend just received an early shipment of Brave Era's brand new silk travel sheet. I have not heard of this company before in my extensive research and I believe the silk travel sheet is their first product to be released. I was extremely excited to find out this sheet is pure mulberry silk and hypoallergenic which is something I have not seen in any other brand so far. My friend heard they are launching a limited release of this product through amazon in October and I am hoping to get my hands on it as soon as possible and be able review it for myself!
REI currently carries the Cocoon Silk Travel Sheet, a high-tech, rectangular sleeping bag liner made of CoolMax® polyester for fast-drying, breathable and easy-care comfort. It also comes with a Cocoon brand travel bag to carry the linen inside.
“ I have used my Cocoon silk travel sheet for five years. It is great for warm weather in tents, trains, hostels, or anywhere you don't trust the cleanliness of the provided bed linens. I have not given it punishing durability testing, but so far I have no signs of tearing.”

"I used it for three weeks as a sleeping bag liner while staying on a friend's boat. The construction is cheap and I already have small tears at the entry point seams on both sides plus trying to locate the entry point in the dark when crawling back into bed is an exercise in frustration."
