Silk is a natural protein fiber, some forms of which can be woven into textiles. The protein fiber of silk is composed mainly of fibroin and is produced by certain insect larvae to form cocoons. The best-known silk is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry silkworm Bombyx mori reared in captivity. Silk is a natural fiber known for its luster, shine, strength, wrinkle resistance, and durability. Although silk is valued for its delicacy, that same delicacy is considered a disadvantage of the fabric, Sweat, bleach, body oils, fragrances, and sunlight all can effectively harm it. So sometimes It is mixed with other fabrics to make our blended silk.
Silk and blended silk are very similar in appearance, texture, and strength. Silk-blend fabrics contain natural silk combined with materials such as cotton, linen, wool, and rayon. Blending allows silk's great qualities to come to the fore while making up for any shortcomings. The blended fabric increases antimicrobial properties, air permeability, and UV protection. Blended silk is used as a great alternative to Silk because it is cheaper and more durable due to its mixed fabric.
