Since last year, a new technology changes the appearance and the feel of the silk fabric. The common idea is that the silk is sheer, shiny, smooth, and silky. Now the new technology is developed to make a big step for the silk so it has the cashmere-like feel and softness. The process is called Napping which is a finishing process and raises the surface fibers of a fabric by means of passage over rapidly revolving cylinders covered with metal points or teasel burrs. Napping is used for the silk fabric with a raised surface. With this cashmere-equal feel and softness, you can get more with silk-only features: warm and moisture-keeping. In the winter, other fabrics usually absorb the heat from your body first and keep you warm. The silk is different because it has the same elements as the human’s skin. It has no need to absorb the heat first and just keeps you warm instantly. Secondly, the silk won’t dry your skin because of the same elements as your skins’. But the other fabrics usually steal your moisture away from your skin. That’s really a smart choice, especially for people who have a dry skin in the dry season.
This fabric can be woven into hundreds of combination of color and patterns including classic and stylish. The product line can include silk scarves, silk shawls, silk bathrobes, and more. If you are tired of the wholesale products and enjoy the uniqueness from the new technology, they are definitely worth it.
