Soft Silk is a soft and rustic bourette silk, also known as raw silk. A nice silk that ensures a great result - ideal for baby and children's garments, because of the silk quality: warm in winter and cooling on a hot summer day.
Due to the high proportion of silk glue (whose smell dissipates relatively quickly), the bourette silk is said to have a natural healing power - it also has anti-inflammatory effects and soothes the skin. The yarn is therefore also ideal for baby and children's clothing.
Nature is important to us, therefore Soft Silk is dyed with AZO free and Oeko-Tex certified dyes, this means that the dye process is gentle to the environment.
There may be excess dye in some of the colors. We therefor recommend to rinse the yarn in cold water before use; finish with a rinse of water added a little vinegar. Always wash in cold water.
Soft Silk is spun and dyed by a small mill in India.
