It’s All Climate
Silk is an all climate fabric. That means that it is very cosy in winter and it also means that when the temperatures do rise, that it is very good at regulating temperatures as well. This alone shows that it has a paradoxical ability to make you warmer and cooler in general. You can also wear silk as a second layer if you want to stay warm without having to add much bulk to whatever you are wearing.
Silk is very absorbent and it can dry very quickly as well. On top of this, it can absorb up to 30% of its own water weight and you will find that it doesn’t feel damp at all. You will also find that it can absorb any perspiration while letting your skin breathe still. In some ways, it can be compared to cotton but the feel and touch of it is so much nicer when compared.
It’s Odor Resistant
Silk while being smooth to touch is also quite resistant to soil, odor and wrinkles. Its natural protein structure makes it very resistant against dirt, mold and other compounds that cause odors.
You may think that silk is one of the most delicate materials out there but this is not the case at all. In fact it is one of the most robust materials out there. On top of this, it is one of the strongest natural fibers. Because its made from long, tightly woven strand of individual fibers, the clothing made from silk is naturally resistant to rips and tears. Clothes made from silk last for a very long time.
