In the words of Marvin Hagler, “ it’s tough to get out of bed to do roadwork at 5 am when you’ve been sleeping in silk pyjamas”.
If you are looking for ways to express your love this Valentine’s Day, then silk is the perfect gift!
Over the years, silk has been called the most luxurious fabric known to man. While some silk fabrics feel slightly different from others, they all have the common characteristic of feeling like heaven on your skin. In addition to this feeling, silk is also breathable and has the ability to feel cool when it’s hot and warm in cold weather.
Why is silk an amazing gift?
Silk is the most luxurious-feeling fabric you can own. Whether you own a silk scarf or bedsheets, silk feels soft, cool to the touch and smooth.
- Silk naturally adapts to your temperature and maintains it. When it is cold, the air captured between the silk threads creates an isolating effect. Therefore the heat is trapped, keeping you cool through a hot day. The thermal regulating property of silk is what keeps you cool when it’s hot, and warm when it’s cold.
- Silk provides the highest comfort without being slippery. It is thin, light and flexible. Therefore, people with joint issues can sleep on and wear silk without discomfort.
- Silk is hypoallergenic. If you have problems wearing certain fabrics, silk can become your fabric of choice to wear. It also protects against respiratory problems as it does not leave any residues in your respiratory tract. For certain respiratory conditions, silk has been advised as a fabric alternative.
- Silk is tough, naturally flexible, durable and resistant. When washed and stored properly, silk lasts for a long time. In the long run, you won’t spend too much replacing your silk as you would with other fabrics.
