Silk generally refers to mulberry silk. Its biggest feature is comfort and heat insulation. There is even the nickname “the second layer of human skin”.
What are the specific characteristics of silk?
1. Composed of mulberry silk protein fiber, the friction coefficient is the lowest among all types of fibers, so people will have a unique softness when they wear silk because it fits every inch of our skin.
2. Mulberry silk is extremely hygroscopic, because the amino element in it is called fibrin, which is easy to distribute water due to its porosity. It can maintain a certain amount of moisture in the skin under normal temperature, so that the skin is not easy to dry. Especially in summer, mulberry silk can help you dissipate heat in your body and absorb sweat on the surface of your body.
3. Mulberry silk is indeed anti-ultraviolet, because the tryptophan in it can absorb ultraviolet light and has a good anti-ultraviolet function. After many people buy silk products, merchants will ask buyers to remember not to expose silk products to the sun after washing. The reason is that after silk absorbs ultraviolet rays, the overall color will gradually turn yellow.
Many experimental data show that wearing silk pajamas is beneficial to sleep. Pajamas are soft in thickness and comfortable to wear, which is good for falling asleep. The silk fabric is soft and can produce a subtle massage effect on the skin, absorb and help eliminate sweat and secretions on the skin, and keep the skin clean.
Contact dermatitis rarely occurs after silk pajamas come into contact with the skin. On the contrary, through the activities of the human body, the skin constantly rubs against silk underwear, which can also play an auxiliary role in the treatment of certain skin diseases.
Of course, there are pros and cons. The silk fabric is particularly delicate and needs the gentle care of the owner.
In short, if you don't really own a silk product, you may never be able to understand its beauty. But when you really wear it, you may not be able to have more love for other fabrics.
