Silk: Fabric Royalty
Originally discovered in China more than 3,000 years ago, silk was the coveted secret of the Chinese Empire. As the fabrics were exported into neighboring countries and through the trade of the namesake Silk Road, the details of silk production were still heavily guarded. Although divulgence of the process was punishable by death, the secret could not be hidden away forever.
Now the secret has been out for millennia, and China is still known for their quality silk production. This precious fabric is made almost exclusively from the spun cocoon of the silk moth Bombyx mori. To extract the silk, the cocoon is submerged in hot water, releasing the silk filament, which is then collected and treated for various kinds of silk threads.
Silk is more than the rich fabric of ancient kingdoms or the soft, supple texture of almost liquid quality. Its unique properties continue to amaze even today. In strength, it actually proves stronger than steel per strand. Also, scientists have been unable to duplicate the mystifying process of the silk worms to produce comparable silk. And in one’s own home, silk is more breathable than most fabrics, naturally moisturizing, essentially hypoallergenic, and softer on one’s skin and hair.
It’s no wonder silk has never gone out of style. It still stands out as one of the most fascinating, luxurious, and healthful fabrics ever recorded.
