Silk information

Who doesn’t like silk? This wonderful soft and smooth fabric is a natural product, coming from the silkworm. It is made of the threads of which the silkworm spins a cocoon.


Properties of silk

Silk is very suitable for clothing and bed linen because it is temperature regulating. This means that with hot weather the silk feels cool and with cold weather silk provides warmth. Furthermore, silk is smooth, shiny, fire-resistant and capable of absorbing a lot of moisture without feeling wet. These properties make silk a wonderful fabric and is highly sought after for centuries.

Quality of silk

The quality of silk is calculated according to the weight of a specific dimension of the fabric. This provides a value which is indicated in momme (mm). The heavier the silk, the higher the quality and the higher the momme value. For clothing is often used silk with a momme between 8 and 12.
