Silk is a natural protein fiber. The shimmering appearance for which silk is prized, stems from silk cloth’s ability to reflect incoming light at different angles. When silk is added to hemp, a whole new genre of fabrics is created. They have a smooth, soft texture that is not slippery, unlike many synthetic fibers, making it comfortable to wear in warm weather and while active. Its low conductivity keeps warm air close to the skin during cold weather. It is often used for clothing such as shirts, blouses, wedding dresses, high fashion projects, negligees, pajamas, robes, skirt suits, sundresses and underwear. Hemp/Silk’s elegant, soft luster and beautiful drape makes it perfect for many furnishing applications. It is used for upholstery, wall coverings, window treatments, rugs, bedding and wall hangings as well.
