Real silk, namely mulberry silk. It is different from many different fabrics, the biggest feature is comfort and heat insulation. There is even the reputation of ‘the second layer of human skin’.
What are the specific characteristics of silk?
- Mulberry silk is composed of protein fibers, and the friction coefficient is the lowest among all types of fibers, so people will feel uniquely soft when they wear silk because it fits every inch of their skin.
- Mulberry silk is extremely hygroscopic, because the amino element in it is called fibrin, and it is easy to distribute water due to its porosity. It can maintain a certain amount of moisture in the skin at room temperature so that the skin is not easy to dry. Especially in summer, mulberry silk can help you dissipate heat in your body and absorb sweat on the surface of your body.
- Mulberry silk is indeed anti-ultraviolet because the tryptophan in it can absorb ultraviolet light and has a good anti-ultraviolet function. After many people buy silk products, merchants will ask buyers to remember not to expose silk products to the sun after washing. The reason is that after silk absorbs ultraviolet rays, the overall color will gradually turn yellow.
Silk underwear and silk pajamas are undoubtedly the best products for sleep.
Many experimental data show that wearing silk pajamas is conducive to sleep. Pajamas are soft in texture and comfortable to wear, which is good for falling asleep and deep sleep and can prevent many diseases. In the hot summer, choosing silk pajamas has even more benefits. Underwear made of real silk not only has a good wearing effect but also has a unique effect on skin tone and disease prevention. Silk fabric is smooth and soft, can produce a subtle massage effect on the skin, absorb and help remove sweat and secretions on the skin, and keep the skin clean.
Contact dermatitis rarely occurs after silk pajamas come into contact with the skin. On the contrary, through the activities of the human body, the skin constantly rubs against the silk underwear, which can also play an auxiliary role in the treatment of certain skin diseases. Medical experts use silk underwear to treat skin diseases such as skin pruritus, female genital pruritus, pruritus pregnancy, pediatric papular urticaria, and calf pruritus and have achieved significant antipruritic effects.
Of course, there are pros and cons. The silk fabric is particularly delicate and needs the gentle care of the owner.
Silk fabrics are not machine washable. It is generally recommended to use a neutral laundry detergent to wash by hand or use a normal shower gel or shampoo. Gently rub the dirty area and place it in a cool place. The silk fabric is light and fast drying. Remember, real silk fabrics should not be soaked in water for a long time, let alone exposed to the sun, as it will cause irreversible damage to the fabric.
After all, if you don't really own a real silk product, you may never be able to appreciate its beauty. But when you really wear it, you may not be able to have more love for other fabrics.
