Emperor Bed Sheets in Silk: The Ultimate in Luxury and Comfort
The idea of an emperor bed conjures images of opulence, grandeur, and unparalleled comfort. When you pair such a bed with silk sheets, the result is a sleep experience fit for royalty.
How large is an emperor bed?
In the United Kingdom, an Emperor bed is considered one of the largest and most luxurious bed sizes available. It measures 215 cm x 215cm, or approximately 84 inches x 84 inches (7 feet x 7 feet). This spacious bed size provides ample room for couples to sleep comfortably, with plenty of space to stretch out and relax. It's the perfect bedtime move for those who desire a grand, opulent sleeping environment and appreciate the extra room an Emperor bed offers.
While standard bed sizes such as single, double, king and super king are more common in the UK, the Emperor bedding emperor and top range is a popular choice for those who prioritise comfort and luxury. When choosing Emperor bedding, it is essential to select fitted sheets, duvets, and other bedding accessories specifically designed to accommodate its generous dimensions. This ensures a proper fit and optimal sleeping experience.
In this article we explore the luxurious world of large emperor silk sheets, their benefits, and why they are the perfect match for an emperor bed. We will delve into the benefits of sleeping on silk sheets and how to choose the right silk sheets for your large emperor bed.
The benefits of sleeping in silk:
A | Hypoallergenic properties
Silk is anti-bacterial and anti-mites forming a protective layer around your skin when you sleep on it.
B | Breathability and moisture-wicking capabilities
Silk's moisture wicking capabilities ensures that sweat is not absorbed creating a breeding ground for mites and bacteria.
C | Temperature regulation for year-round comfort
Pure silk is thermoregulating and keeps you cool on a hot day and a tad bit warm when it is cold.
D | Skin and hair benefits
As silk does not absorb as much moisture as cotton (including Egyptian cotton), it retains skins natural moisture delaying the signs of ageing and keeping your skin naturally hydrated.
A similar effect it has to hair by keeping hair strands more hydrated and hence keeping them soft, adding a sheen and reducing dryness and breakage.

Choosing the Right Silk Sheet for Your Emperor Size Bed:
A | Determining the appropriate sheet size and depth
Emperor fitted sheet is 200 x 200 x 35cm deep (78.7 x 78.7 x 13.7in deep).
When looking for Emperor duvet covers, the size is 290 x 235cm (114 x 92in).
The Emperor flat sheet is 320 x 290cm (126 x 114in).
It is wise to look up the size chart of a bedding company before making a purchase to avoid surprises. In the UK, sizes are somewhat standardised, however in Europe and USA, there is variance in actual sizing under the same name. Check the dimensions of your bed, pillows and duvet inserts to ensure your new bedding will be a good fit.
B | The importance of "Momme" (weight)
Like thread count is used for cotton, for silk there is momme. Mulberry silk is the gold standard for silk bedding and the desired thickness is between 19momme (as a minimum) - 22 momme (as ideal balance between thickness and value in sheets). Some brands do not mention momme, which often means they are using low momme silk, which is thinner and won't last. For the best balance of luxury, 22 momme is ideal in sheets and 25 momme in pillowcases.
C | The soft hand feel
Softness of your Emperor bedding depends on the type of silk, grade of silk, the weave, and finishing process. Grade 6A Mulberry silk is the highest grade, with less than 3% of annual silk production meeting this grade.
D | Design, aesthetics and colour
There are different styles to dress your silk bed linen with a mix and match of colours to go with your decor. From soothing colours, to plain designs there is something for everyone. To go for a natural sleep experience, choose silk pillowcases that compliment your down or feather pillows and add a few silk cushions to finish the look.
