What is Momme(mm) thread
When it comes to the very best in High Quality Real Mulberry and Charmeuse silk, Momme's the word!
So what is Momme (mm) thread? Allow us to Enlighten you my stylish friend!
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 sized 45 inches by 100 yards. For example, a 100 yard bolt of 19mm 45” silk would weigh 19 pounds.
So what does that really mean to the average person looking to buy silk sheets?
The easiest way to explain what momme means to a silk scarf buyer is to give you an analogy.
Most people know that the quality of cotton scarves s measured by thread count. The higher the thread count, the higher the quality, which results in a higher price.
Similarly, the quality of pure silk scarves is measured by Momme weight. Higher Momme equals higher quality.
An increase in Momme results in a heavier, stronger, more durable silk. Silk that is 17 Momme or lower is considered lightweight and is typically used for delicate, gently-used items such as light blouses or summer scarves.
