Why We Wear Silk

Silk has great insulation properties meaning it is warm in winter and cool in summer - this is ideal for the ever changing climate. Silk is actually the strongest natural fibre, it has moderate abrasion resistance and has good tensile strength, making it high resistance to deformation. It is also low in density, making it lightweight and comfortable. Silk is also known to improve skin appearance and health, it is an ageing preventative, great for sensitive skin and can help ease menopausal hot flashes.


People tend to think Silk is too difficult to care but that isn't actually the case. Read here about how we care for our silk without having to go to the dry cleaners.
