Besides its luxurious softness and lustrous beauty, there are various other benefits of silk that other man-made fabrics simply cannot match.
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 unique ability to provide both comforts.
It is highly absorbent and can absorb 30% of its weight without feeling damp. This helps in removing moisture and perspiration away from the body during sleep, thus keeping the body dry and cool.
Silk can assist with sensitive skin. Silk is 100% natural and hypoallergenic because of its protein structure, and contains many amino acids in common with the human body, these acids help moisture penetrate the skin (aid in absorption) and aid in skin healing.
Silk can alleviate issues like:
Asthma – As silk is resistant to dust mites
Skin inflammation (psoriasis)
Post-chemotherapy sensitive skin
Post surgery sutures
In spite of its delicate appearance, silk is relatively robust. Its smooth surface resists soil and odours well. Silk is wrinkle and tear resistant, washes easily and dries quickly.
Silk also has great qualities as it can make hair which has slept upon it shinier and brighter, and it is said it can improve visual wrinkles as it softens the skin with repeated contact.
