The fabric:
Silk is a natural product that offers a broad spectrum of optical textures, from tender silk chiffon and multi-coloured woven iridescent silk to bourette silk with a linen-like character. Since silk absorbs moisture from the skin’s surface and slowly releases it via condensation, it is both warming and cooling depending on the season.

 

Care tips:
Silk reacts sensitively to strong sunlight; colours will fade and the silk will yellow. For this reason, silk should avoid exposure to direct and strong sunlight. Silk should also be stored in rolls, since it can become brittle in the folds if it lies for too long.
Silk can be dropped off for chemical cleaning or washed by hand. In case it is washed by hand, it should be softened shortly in lukewarm water. A special silk shampoo should be used or mild soap is recommended. Multiple rinses will be necessary to ensure that all soap residue is washed out. Add a little diluted acetic acid to the last rinse to freshen up the colours and to rebind the fibres.
Especially dark silk will not stand up to long periods of softening, since the dye will loosen from the fibres and the silk will fade.
Silk is always ironed inside out at low temperature. It should still be slightly damp, but not wet, during ironing.

 

Production tips:
Light silk fabrics should be sewn with a fine needle thickness of 60 to 70.
It is important that the needle tip does not tug on any threads, so always use a new needle at the start of your silk projects.
The stitch length should be shorter (1.5 to 2 mm), and the thread tension should be loose (e.g. 2 to 3). This makes the seams more robust.
