You’ve probably noticed that different fabrics give you different experiences when you sleep, ranging from warm wool in the winter to cooling bamboo in the summers. One fabric that keeps us thermoregulated all year long? Silk!
For soft, smooth, and sustainable pajamas we love, check out these brands using ethical silk or eco-friendly silk-like alternatives—like organic bamboo. Throw a set on as you get ready for bed, slip on a sleep mask, and enjoy a good night’s rest.
Best For | Affordable silk-like pajamas
Price Range | $17–$38
Ettitude is a trailblazer when it comes to organic bamboo that’s actually affordable. Their CleanBamboo™ garments are crafted in a nontoxic, closed-loop system where the water is reused up to 100 times before being discarded. These silk-like pajamas are free of harmful chemicals, hypoallergenic, and breathable for even the most sensitive of sleepers—and they’re pretty darn cozy, too. The brand also has a strong commitment to sustainability; check out their 2020 Impact Report for proof.
Best For | Washable silk
Price Range | $50–$100
For silk PJs you can sleep soundly in, we love Quince’s washable sets. They’re woven from 100 percent Mulberry silk, with just enough weight to feel truly indulgent. Each pair is dyed without hazardous chemicals in Bluesign®-certified factories that prioritize reducing water, energy, and chemical use. Quince partners with BCI-certified factories in China aimed to improve working conditions throughout the supply chain so everyone is treated ethically and fairly.
Best For | Silk sleep sets
Price Range | $188–$298
Lunya knows that if you want to have the most luxurious, soothing sleep, you can’t do better than silk pajamas. That’s why all of their beautiful (and washable!) silk loungewear is sold in sets, so you can get the full-bodied experience. Using only bluesign®-approved dyes, the silk is safely colored without harming the workers, the planet, or you.
4. The Ethical Silk Company
Best For | His & Her matching silk robes and sets
Price Range | $200–$330
The Ethical Silk Company works with a fair trade tailor in Jaipur, India for its high-quality, sustainable sleepwear. Instead of traditional silk, the brand employs cruelty-free practices by only using silk extracted from the cocoon after the moth has left. The patterns on these PJs are created via block printing, which is done by hand one at a time, using low-impact dyes and recycled water. In addition to full sets, you can also find a number of silk slips and separates.
Best For | Luxury sleepwear
Price Range | $250–$475
Cosabella’s silk pajamas are sustainable and sexy, inspired by modern femininity. Partnering with Italian artisans and family-run workshops, this European-made brand focuses on luxury wear that makes you feel confident and comfortable all at once. Pieces are delicately dyed using natural colors and techniques dating back to the Renaissance. Cosabella offers sets, separates, robes, and slips, for however you sleep.
Best For | Slips for sleep or brunch
Price Range | $16–$68
Parade is an internet fave for their sustainable, size-inclusive undies. The brand makes impressive strides to be a better business for our planet with eco-friendly fabrics made from sustainably sourced and recycled materials. They have also pledged to be climate positive by 2025! We love their silk-like slips, camis, pants, and sets that are so cute you can wear them right out to brunch.
7. Sunday Citizen
Best For | Silk robes
Price Range | $90–$230
Sunday Citizen is run by a fourth-generation textile family who knows their fabrics. They wanted to create luxury experiences and comfort that can survive the wear-and-tear of daily use. These 100% silk robes, camis, and sleep dresses are buttery, breathable, and made to be loved (and machine-washed!). Treat yourself!
8. Maylyn & Co.
Best For | Vegan silk slips & sets
Price Range | $85–$220
Maylyn & Co. primarily uses plant-based fabrics and responsibly sourced silk to bring comfort and style into your life. PETA-approved, their collection includes a vegan silk option made from organically farmed Lotus plants. Maylyn & Co. only partners with International Labour Organization-certified factories and finishes pieces in their Toronto space. We especially love the slips and sets for a quick transition from day to night. (Or for 24/7 attire… we’re not judging!)
9. Luna and Noon
Best For | Vegan silk
Price Range | £160
UK-based Luna and Noon was launched by two friends who shared a passion for travel-inspired pajamas. Ethically made with hand-painted prints, you can find adult pajama sets to remind you of the sea, the forest, and even the hills of Rajasthan, India. This set is made with 100 percent cupro vegan silk, using regenerated cellulose from recycled cotton, as well as organic cotton piping and natural shell buttons. A portion of each purchase also gives back to various causes, depending on the collection.
