Materials!!!. Silk’s luxurious and soft flowy feel gives it a rich look. For example,it may be a silk scarf, a saree, silk skirts.Hermes surely know how to promote their silk scarves. Let’s know something more about Silk.

Silk is a natural protein fiber obtained from cocoons made by the larvae of silkworms. The prized iridescent appearance comes from the fibers’ triangular prism-like structure, which allows silk cloth to refract incoming light at different angles.

Besides its luxurious softness and lustrous beauty, there are various other benefits of silk that other fabrics, whether natural or man-made, simply cannot match. Despite misconceptions about its delicacy, the following advantages have rightly earned silk its reputation as the queen of fabrics, and placed it in a league of its own:

  • The most hypoallergenic of all fabrics because of its natural protein structure.
  • An all-climate fabric, silk is warm and cozy in winter, without being bulky underneath, and comfortably cool in warmer temps. Highly absorbent: it can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling damp, so it absorbs perspiration while letting your skin breathe.
  • Relatively robust and strong – Its smooth surface resists soil and odors well; is wrinkle and tear resistant, and dries quickly. It easily competes with steel yarn in tensile strength.
  • Takes color well; washes easily; and is easy to work with in spinning, weaving, knitting, and sewing. Mixes well with other animal and vegetable fibers.
