Silk is known for its drapey quality with a flattering sheen and its ability to absorb moisture. In addition, due to its sturdiness, it's a great material to use when creating long-lasting products.
Silk can naturally break away mites, dust, and other particles; it doesn't need to be washed as frequently as other materials. It is often enough to hang the garment in fresh air for a while or steam the garment to freshen it up. It's best for silk to be kept away from alcohol-based products such as perfume and hairspray. Avoid hanging silk in the sunlight, as it can change to yellow colors. Do not rub stains away with water, only dry clean items.
