Silk is the queen of textile fiber.
« on: May 17, 2018, 03:56:58 PM »
Silk is known as the Queen of all textile fibres because of its sheen and luster. Silk is a natural protein fiber, some forms of which can be woven into textiles. Silk is the only natural filament that man does not have to spin before it can be used for textile fabrics. The cultivation of silk is known as Sericulture. The natural silk spun by silk worms in the form of cocoons is utilized only to 50% of its production because of lack in right way of processing and deficiency in sericulture.

Qualities of silk given below:

Tough: Silk is as strong as steel filament of comparable size.

Lustrous: Silk has an elegant luster of pearl. This comes from the multilayered, prismlike structure of fibroin, which diffuses light.

Gentle to skin: The amino acids that make up silk are gentle to the skin. Silk is said to guard against various skin-related ailments. Some cosmetics are made from silk powder.

Moisture absorbent: The amino acids and the tiny voids in silk fiber absorb and let out a considerable amount of perspiration, keeping you dry and cool in the hot season.

Heat resistant: Silk does not burn easily and does not give off toxic gas in the event of fire.

Protective: Silk absorbs ultraviolet rays and thus protects the skin.

Not prone to static-electricity buildup: Since silk contains both positive and negative ions and is moisture absorbent, it does not readily form static electricity, as some other fabrics do.
