Washed-Silk Fabric is a silk product that has been washed with water. The fabric feels much softer after washing, and the clothes made of this fabric have very little shrinkage after washing.
The shrinkage rate of silk is relatively high. It is advisable to choose a specification larger than the actual demand when purchasing finished products. If it is fabric, soak the fabric in water for more than 5 hours before making it, let the fabric fully absorb the water, and then dry it. Soak for the second time, so that the silk will not be deformed after two dips and two dryings, and it can be washed at will.
1. Silk generally refers to silk, including mulberry silk, tussah silk, castor silk, cassava silk, etc. Silk, known as the "Queen of Fibers", has been favored by people throughout the ages for its unique charm. Silk is a protein fiber, and silk fibroin contains 18 kinds of amino acids that are beneficial to the human body.
2. Silk fiber is the only natural filament fiber that has been practically used, which is coagulated by silkworm-modified mucus. There are many kinds of silk fibers due to the different feeding habits of silkworms, including mulberry silk fibers formed by eating mulberry leaves, tussah silk fibers formed by eating tussah leaves, and other wild silk fibers formed by eating cassava leaves, mulberry leaves, and castor leaves.
3. Mulberry silk fibers and tussah silk fibers can retain the shape of filament fibers in the filament yarn formed by the bundle, while other types of wild silk fibers can only be transformed into short fibers for textile processing. Among the filament yarns formed by bundling mulberry silk fibers and tussah silk fibers, the filament yarns of mulberry silk fibers are the most important, accounting for most of the natural filament yarns.
