Long Sleeve Crewneck Nightshirt in Mid-weight Filament Silk
It's 100 % silk--how can I lose?
Actually I have not used the nightgown, but I bought it because it is one of the 100% silk gowns that used to be a Wintersilks staple. I have bought several of the newer silk/modal blends and I find they are okay for spring and fall, but they are too short for the winter temps we keep in our homes (high fifties/low sixties) and are overwhelmingly too warm for me in any temps approaching the seventies. I am praying that enough people will request the return of the 100% silk option before my 100% silk gowns expire. In the meantime I have this gown as a winter back up and if I have to, I will chop off the sleeves so I can use it as a summer gown. I have slept comfortably in 100% silk for decades and mourn the loss of these gowns.

FLIMSY AND SNAGS AND RUNS EASILY
FITS WELL AND IS COMFORTABLE BUT THE FABRIC IS LIGHT WEIGHT AND SEE THRU SO NOT AS WARM AS IT SHOULD BE, ON COLD NIGHTS I HAVE TO WEAR LONG JOHNS IN ADDITION TO BE WARM ENOUGH.
THE FABRIC IS SO LIGHT WEIGHT THAT IT PILLS AND RUNS EASILY. MY CAT WALKED ACROSS MY LAP AND IT MADE SMALL HOLES THAT RAN.
IF IT WERE HEAVIER WEIGHT THESE PROBLEMS MAY NOT EXIST.

For a mid weight item this is very shear. Have bought this in the past and the quality was much better. Sent this and a second order back for refund. I guess things are not made like they use to be.

I bought this for my 98 year old Mother. She loves it because it doesn't "stick" to the sheets, allowing her to turn over freely, it has long sleeves, keeping her arms from chilling, it is substantial enough to give her full coverage and the color is her favorite (blue).

I love this nightshirt best of all.
I have been buying and wearing this unisex midweight long sleeved nightshirt for years, and I still love it best of all your products. A nice, simple design, with no frills is what I love. I do wish it also came in a shorter sleeve for the summertime. The other unisex nightshirts in this line are from a thinner silk, which runs like stockings. Stick to the midweight... it is great!

I have had this gown in black for about 10 years. Love it. Ordered another one about 5 yrs. ago. Not too hot, just right. It tells you to dry flat but I have been washing in machine and dryer for years and its fine.
I need to order more. My 10 yr. old one is starting to get a bit ratty now.

I love my gown!
I'm ordering another gown today just to have a second color. I've had my current one for several years now. It launders great in the washer in whatever regular cycle my husband uses for all our laundry (yes, he does all the laundry!) and it looks beautiful when he takes it out of the dryer! It is warm and cozy. I like the fact it has sleeves with the ribbing to keep out cold air and it's plenty long to keep my knees warm! I got a size larger than usual just because I like my gowns to be roomy. This gown is perfect for me! Great product!

This nightshirt is completely see-through, and looks totally indecent, despite the conservative cut!
