What is Silk?
Silk is a naturally strong and lustrous fibre harvested in China from the continuous filament cocoon of the Mulberry silkworm.
An all-climate fabric, silk is warm and cosy in winter and comfortably cool when temperatures rise. Its natural temperature-regulating properties give silk this paradoxical ability to cool and warm simultaneously. Silk garments thus outperform other fabrics in both summer and winter. Silk worn as a second layer warms without being bulky.
In spite of its delicate appearance, silk is relatively robust and its smooth surface resists soil and odours well. While silk abrasion resistance is moderate, it is the strongest natural fibre and, surprisingly, it easily competes with steel yarn in tensile strength.
Silk takes colour well, washes easily, and is easy to work with in spinning, weaving, knitting, and sewing. Silk mixes well with other animal and vegetable fibres.
