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. An all-climate fabric, silk is warm and snuggly 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.
Silk is highly absorbent: it can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling damp. Silk will absorb perspiration while letting baby’s skin breathe. This means your child will never feel ‘clammy’ since humidity between garment and skin is reduced.
Because of its natural protein structure, silk is the most hypoallergenic of all fabrics.
In spite of its delicate appearance, silk is relatively robust. While silk abrasion resistance is moderate, it is the strongest natural fiber and washes easily.
Its smooth surface resists soil and odors well. Silk is wrinkle and tear resistant, and dries quickly too – a must for busy mothers!
