Lunya Washable Silk Pajamas and Loungewear Review
I’ve been a fan of Lunya washable silk pajamas for awhile now – ever since I visited a pop-up shop they had in Los Angeles a couple years ago. Since then, I’ve been lucky enough to be gifted a few sets so I thought I’d share a Lunya washable silk pajamas and loungewear review with you!
Lunya Washable Silk Pajamas and Loungewear Review
Lunya was founded by Ashely Merrill around 2012 because she couldn’t find sleep wear that was both comfortable and beautiful. She went on to create elevated sleep and loungewear that work for the modern woman so that everyone can be “Good in Bed”.
Lunya is also prioritizing sustainabilty by using responsible, organic and natural fibers and partnering with mills and vendors to avoid the use of toxic chemicals in production. They are also working towards having 100% fair trade certified production partners by 2026. You can read more about Lunya’s sustainable and ethical manufacturing practices here!
Lunya does have a few brick and morter stores, called Bedrooms. If you live in any of these cities make sure to stop by and see the pieces in person! You will definitely fall in love with the feel of the fabrics!
Lunya Washable Silk Pajamas Set Review
The Washable Silk Pajama Set is the first pajama set that I received from Lunya. It’s made from 100% mulberry silk which is thermoregulating. That means its going to help you stay the perfect temperature – not too hot and not too cold! The top and bottom are sold as a set – so unfortunately you can’t mix and match sizes or colors. The top and bottom both have a tulip style hem which makes the fabric move really nicely to give you flexibility. The bottoms also have a no slip waistband to keep them from riding up.
I also love the color options for these sets. The dark navy color is gorgeous! Lunya will also release limited edition colors through out the year. I’ve had my eye on emerald sets that they release occasionally – it’s such a pretty dark green shade!
I really love the shape of this set. It just looks really flattering on. And if you run hot at night this is the perfect set to wear. It’s definitely breezy and light. I tend to like a little more coverage at night (unless I’m sleeping somewhere REALLY hot) so I tend to gravitate towards my other Lunya set – which I’ll share below. But otherwise I don’t really have any complaints. It feels amazing to sleep in. This set is Lunya’s #1 bestseller for a reason!
Lunya Washable Silk High Rise Pant Set
The High Rise Pant Set was the second set I got from Lunya and I was really excited to try it out. I tend to prefer wearing long pants and a t-shirt at night so this felt like the perfect combination. It’s made from the same 100% mulberry silk so it’s still going to keep you cool at night. The top is a cropped button down design and the bottoms are high waisted with long side slits for ventilation.
I do prefer wearing this set because I feel more comfortable with the extra coverage. I still think it’s cool enough to wear on summer nights. Keep in mind that the top is cropped so you’ll need to wear the bottoms high on your waist to avoid having your belly show. If you’d like a longer length tee to wear with bottoms you can try the Washable Silk Tee Pant Set. Honestly, that set does look really comfortable! Especially if you don’t want to deal with buttons.
I think my only regret with this set is that I chose a light color. With kids and drinking coffee in the mornings I feel more nervous about getting stains on this light fabric! If I had chosen the same navy blue color as my shorts set I could have mix and matched the tops and bottoms as well! That’s something to keep in mind if you are buying multiple sets. Either buy the same color or pick complimentary colors so that you can mix and match the tops and bottoms!
Size, Fit, and Material
I’m wearing size small in both sets and I think they run true to size. When in doubt I think you could take your larger size because you don’t want sleepwear to feel tight. I have gained weight since I took photos with these sets and the bottoms are feeling a little tighter. I’m probably a 28-29″ waist so I think I’d fit comfortably in a size Medium bottom too. That’s the downside of ordering the silk sets – you can’t order a separate top and bottom size.
The silk material is really soft and luxurious. I feel like the silk has a nice weight to it too which helps the sets drape nicely against the body. Be aware that the silk material does wrinkle easily. So it definitely doesn’t look as smooth as it does in the photos after you wear it. It will also be wrinkly after you wash it so you’ll either need to iron or steam it. I don’t mind the wrinkles though because I’m just wearing these sets to bed.

Lunya Cozy Cotton Silk Set
Cozy Cotton Silk Pocket Henley
Lunya doesn’t just make silk sets – they also have other luxurious materials like this cotton silk material. This is my most recent set and it’s perfect for colder months. It’s technically not sold as a set – you have to buy the top and bottom separately. That’s great if you are different sizes on the top and bottom! The only downside is your color choice might be sold out in either the top or bottom.
The Cozy Cotton Silk Pocket Henley is made from 70% cotton, 20% Nylon, and 10% silk. So it’s a nice thick, heavy material that still feels really soft. I love the high neck with the functional buttons down the front. It is an oversized fit so I went with my usual size Small and I think it’s perfect. I did get the matching bottoms but this sweatshirt also looks great with a pair of jeans. The color I’m wearing is Humble Brown which isn’t available anymore in the Henley.
Cozy Cotton Silk Ribbed Leggings
The Cozy Cotton Silk Ribbed Leggings are the perfect compliment to the Henley for a comfy loungewear outfit. Unlike the Henley, the Ribbed Leggings are made to be fitted. They are made from a similar cotton/nylon/silk material but with a bit more stretch to help keep their shape. They have a thick waistband to keep them from sliding down because they are meant to be worn high. I also love the pocket on the back with the cute tag!
Since I’m between a size small and medium for my bottoms I decided to size up to the medium for these pants. They definitely still fit – they are just a little roomier. I think if you want them to be form fitting you can go with your usual size. I think I could have fit in the size small as well since these are pretty stretchy.
Overall, I really do like this set as well. I love the feel of the material and it keeps me nice and cozy. This is definitely my go-to set in the winter because it keeps me warmer than my silk pieces. I think at one point they had Cozy Cotton Silk Joggers which I think I would have preferred over the leggings. I like my bottoms to be a little loose and flowy as opposed to fitted. Maybe they will restock them at some point!
Other Lunya Sets
As I mentioned above, Lunya also makes sets in other materials – like Organic Pima, Soft Modal, and Cashmere. They also have sleep dresses, robes, hair accessories, intimates, clothes, and more!

How to Care for Lunya Washable Silk Pajamas
Lunya does boast that their silk sets are machine washable. I’ll admit, I was a little hesitant to wash my silk pieces in the washing machine. However, I did wash my sets on the gentle cycle with some other intimates, laid them flat to dry and they came out fine! They are wrinkled after the wash so just give them a little steam and they’ll be good as new!
I wouldn’t put these sets in the dryer (but that’s my personal opinion – I don’t machine dry any of my clothes but that’s a story for another day!). If you really want to you can probably get away with throwing them in the dryer for a couple minutes – just don’t let them dry completely in the dryer or they might shrink. I also wouldn’t wash them with rough fabrics like denim or towels because it’s still a delicate fabric. I always wash my clothes in cold water as well to help preserve the fabric and the color. You could place your silk pieces in a mesh laundry bag to help protect them further. I don’t wash my sleepwear after every wear (does anyone??) so I think that helps them last longer too. These sets are expensive so I think it’s worth taking a little extra care!
Is Lunya Worth It?
If you are looking for luxurious pajamas and loungewear that make you look and feel amazing then I think Lunya is absolutely worth it. I feel like the silk material is really high quality. The silk is thick and has a soft, almost suede-like texture. This isn’t that thin, shiny silk that I’ve seen on other intimates. I have a lot of pajama sets in different styles and brands and I can say that my Lunya sets make me feel the most comfortable and the most sexy. It is possible to look cute and comfortable at bedtime!
P.S. Lunya’s companion brand for men is called Lahgo! So you can get a silk set for your man as well!
