What is Silk?

The protein fiber of silk is composed mainly of fibroin and produced by insect larvae to form cocoons. The best-known type of silk is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry silkworm reared in captivity. The shimmering high lustre appearance of silk is due to the unique triangular prism-like structure of the silk fibre, which allows silk cloth to refract incoming light at different angles. Silk fabric was first developed in ancient China, with some of the earliest examples found as early as 3500 BC.

Silk Chiffon is an elegant and a very fine fabric with a soft, beautiful drape and a fine crepe like texture. It is quite strong and woven in such a manner that even the heaviest weights are sheer. Other fabrics that are made from silk include charmeuse, habutai, taffeta, crepe de chine, dupioni, noil, tussah, and shantung.

Ways to test that it is genuine silk

1. Since silk fabric weaving is handmade of natural fiber, this contains small joins in the thread along the warp and weft. On the other hand, polyester has a smooth feeling as it is machine-made and has a perfect surface with no bungs.

 

2. The burning test: Take two threads of real silk and light them with a flame. It will leave a fine ash and smell like burned hair. When the flame is taken away, the burning will stop. On the other hand if you light imitation silk / synthetic fibres, they will drip and burn with black smoke. And, they will continue to burn after the flame is taken away.
