100% Mulberry Silk
Mulberry silk is the highest quality silk available for purchase. The unique thing about Mulberry silk is how it is produced. Mulberry silk has its history in China, where local farmers grow Mulberry trees and harvest the leaves for silkworms to feed on. The resulting cocoons are spun into raw silk fibers.
Because the silkworms of the Bombyx mori moth are fed only Mulberry leaves, the resulting silk is some of the finest available in the world. Pure white in color and made up of individual long fibers, Mulberry silk is more refined than other types of silk.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is wearing a sleep mask beneficial for hormonal health
Moon Mask works by blocking our artificial light and is your secret weapon when it comes to upgrading the quality of your sleep and in turn upgrading the health of your cycle.
Any light exposure in your bedroom at night (street lights, clock, iPhones) disrupts your biological “clock” that helps to regulate our sleep-wake patterns. Artificial light suppresses melatonin, the sleep inducing hormone, which can lead to sleeping issues or disorders such as insomnia. Melatonin’s job is to signal to the brain that it is time to get sleepy, so light exposure, particularly at night, sends the wrong signal to the brain, which can profoundly disrupt one’s ability to fall asleep quickly and stay asleep.
Research has shown that the use of eye masks can result in more REM time, shorter REM latency, and elevated levels of melatonin. This helps to promote healthy sleep patterns and hormone balance.
A high quality sleep mask like Moon Mask blocks out light by acting as a shield, so when your brain senses total darkness, it increases the production of melatonin helping you to fall asleep faster and for longer. It works to realign your body’s internal body clock with the rising and setting of the sun.
What is Moon Mask made from?
Our sleep mask is made from 100% Mulberry silk which is the highest quality silk available for purchase. Cos’ we’re all about the best of the best around here!
We use the highest grade (6A) long fibre mulberry silk, with a thickness of 22 momme and enforce the strictest quality guidelines, including non-toxic dyes. Momme which is the imperial measurement indicating the weight of silk. The thicker or heavier, the more it drapes, the softer it feels and the longer it lasts. Customers have remarked time and again how amazed they are by the difference.
This mask is naturally hypoallergenic as well.
Do you use non-toxic dyes?
Yes, like all of our Moonbox products we use non-toxic ingredients. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that they meet the very stringent international Oeko-Tex® Standard 100.
If you purchase a cheaper silk pillowcase online or in-store, you may not know what you’re really buying.
We work with one of the largest and longest running silk suppliers in the world. They take great pride in the quality of silk they produce.
It is with silk as it is with many things in life; you get what you pay for.
Is Moon Mask adjustable?
Yes! Moon Mask has been custom designed to be adjustable which is what makes it stand out from other sleep masks available which are elastic and often too tight or too lose and easily slip off your head whilst sleeping.
Moon Mask is designed to mould to the shape of your head, so use the adjustable velcro straps to ensure perfect fit for ultimate comfort. You’ll be on cloud 9 in no time.
How do you wash Moon Mask?
1. Cold hand wash separately
2. Use a mild silk-friendly pH neutral liquid detergent
(ALWAYS use a ph neutral liquid detergent and/or fabric softener. Silk is a natural fibre and washing in a solution that’s too acidic or alkaline can cause the silk to harden in a single wash. If you can't find a detergent that specifies ph level then just go for one that specifies silk.)
3. Dry flat in shade, avoid direct sunlight
4. Cool iron
Do not bleach & do not tumble dry; do not soak or rub
Moon Mask is dry cleanable.
Is Moon Mask vegan?
All of our Moonbox products are vegan, except for Moon Mask which is made from mulberry silk.
Why sleep on a silk pillowcase instead of cotton or satin?
Cotton sleep masks are known to scratch and tugs on delicate facial skin, resulting in premature stretching and sleep-creases whilst synthetic satin is a poor petroleum based substitute for real silk. A high quality silk allows your skin to glide and protects hair from breaking.
