What is Momme(mm) thread

Great Question!
When it comes to the very best in high quality real mulberry charmeuse silk, momme's the word!

So what is Momme (mm) thread? Allow us to enlighten you my stylish friend! Momme is to silk what thread count is to cotton. The higher the momme, the higher the silk quality. Since silk is a natural fiber, this results in higher prices than many other textiles.
Momme is Japanese form of weight measurement. Pronounced “moe-mie” and abbreviated as “mm,” momme expresses the weight (in pounds) of a piece of material.
What You Need To Know:
The higher the momme, the stronger the fabric. Typically, silk that is less than 19mm  is considered lightweight and is mainly used for delicate, items such as scarves!
