Product Review: Cocoon Silk Sleep Sheet
I purchased this product after stumbling upon it on Amazon. I didn't think I'd really need it, but I was willing to try it as it seemed that everyone who had one *LOVED* theirs. Plus, I was venturing into countries and travel modes that were a bit more basic/rough than I'd previously experienced.
Best. Purchase. Ever!
If you call yourself a traveler (read: not a tourist), you should already own one of these. Feeling finnicky about that camel-hair blanket in that bedouin camp in the Middle East? Scratchy, dusty sheets (or no sheet at all) in a much-overrated hotel in Turkey? Out comes the sleep sheet.
The sheet is shaped much like a sleeping bag, but the raw silk is stretchy and breathes, while keeping you comfortably warm in temperate climates. Weighs less than a pound and packs down into a small pouch (included) about the size of a six-inch sub sandwich. I pack mine into the top/hood section of my backpack.
-Wash on gentle, cold water. Air dry (Dries very quicky. Seriously, don't dry this in a dryer, reviewers who have done so have ended up with shredded/ruined sleep sheets.)
