What is a Momme (mm)?
The weight, and therefore thickness, of silk fabrics is classified by the Chinese system of mommes, pronounced mummy (mom-ee), and normally shortened to ‘mm’. The metric equivalent of 1 momme is 4.3g per square metre. A small Pongee scarf (10 mommmes) 28cm by 28cm (10in by 10in) weighs just under 13g. The higher the momme, the heavier the silk.
