Momme is the measurement used to determine the actual weight of silk.
The measurement is produced by weighing a piece of silk that is 45 inches wide and 100 yards in length.
So, if the total weight is 18 pounds, then the silk is given a grading of 18 momme. Oftentimes, cheap silk will have a lower momme.
This is because less silk is used in making the sheets.
A good momme for silk sheets is anything that is 19 momme or higher.
If the store where you are buying the sheets doesn’t know the momme weight then be careful, they may be trying to trick you into buying lower quality silk sheets.
Always ask for this measurement.
