Silk is a natural fiber produced by a domesticated insect, the silkworm, bred by humans since time immemorial.
An Oriental traditions tells that while a Chinese princess was having a tea in his garden in the shade of a mulberry tree, a cocoon fell from the tree into her cup. As soon as this one got wet, the threads of which it was composed started to unravel and the pricess discovered by chance the thread of pure silk.
Silk is well-known for its shine due to the very nature of its filament that is born as semi-liquid and solidifies on contact with the air remaining anyway traslucent. It has a smooth, soft texture which is not slippery, unlike many synthetic fibers.
It’s a fiber that can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture and is highly breathable, therefore suitable all year long.
Its resistance to moths and mites and its elasticity makes it a soft and resistent fiber suitable for many uses.
