What is mulberry silk?
Mulberry silk refers to the silk made from the cocoons of the larvae of Mulberry silkworms. The entire production process is carefully monitored and the environment of the silkworm larvae is also strictly controlled. This allows for the larvae to spin silk threads that are rounder, more excellent, smoother, lighter, and more uniformly colored than any other type of silk in the world.
Fun fact: Did you know that mulberry silk fibers are firm and can easily beat steel fibers of the same diameter in strength and durability!
What is the difference between charmeuse silk and silk twill?
We carry Charmeuse silk and silk twill scarves. They both are made from mulberry silk and have the same momme. The only difference is in the weave. Charmeuse silk is woven is a way that allows for extra luster and shine. It is a plain weave. Whereas twill is woven to create diagonal parallel ribs. The texture of twill makes colors play with light and gives an elegant silvery glow to the scarves.
However, both weaves have a soft and smooth texture and both drape well.
What is 16mm silk?
Momme(mm) is used to measure density of silk fabrics and provide understanding of the quality in a silk fabric.So, if a fabric is listed with a momme weight of 8mm, it means that 100 yards of the fabric weighs 8 pounds.Higher the mm, better the silk. We use 16mm silk to make our scarves. Our scarves are lightweight yet durable.
Any brand that stands behind its quality should declare its silk mm. If they don’t, look elsewhere.
Why is silk considered good for hair?
Silk is a natural textile and its weaves are much tighter. Which means it will not absorb as much natural oils from your skin and scalp as other fabrics. Smoothness of the silk helps reduce friction against hair. Which means you will have fewer split ends, fewer broken hair strands, less pulling and stress on hair roots.
How to iron your silk scarf?
1. Use a lower heat setting. Most irons have a silk setting and then slowly increase the heat if need.
2. Keep the iron moving and never keep the iron in the same place long.
3. You can place a clean piece of cotton over top the silk when ironing to reduce the chance of damaging the silk fabric.
4. If your iron is dirty, clean the iron before you start. Some irons can build up rust and other debris in the steam holes. Release steam from the iron a few times on some cotton fabric before you start.

Is our silk biodegradable?
We use 100% natural mulberry silk. Natural silk is considered biodegradable because it is made from a protein called fibroin, which is produced by silkworms or spiders. This protein is organic and can be broken down by natural processes over time.
We use eco-friendly dyes so it doesn't affect the bio-degradability of our product.
