If you want to make a silk bonnet, it will cost you very little , compared to buying the same silk bonnet in the store. You'll need fabric for the bonnet, elastic for the band, and a few tools such as scissors, a needle, and thread. You'll want to look for fabrics that are lightweight, breathable, and soft on the skin. Cotton, linen, and silk are all great options for fabric selection, as they are all lightweight and comfortable. I chose 100% silk because it's soft, luxurious, and has a beautiful drape. This is also one of the benefits of a silk sleeping bonnet. Silk also reduces friction and absorbs oil, so to a certain extent, it will reduce the accumulation of oil on the scalp.
