Silk is one of the strongest natural fibres. It makes for extremely durable fabrics with a gentle, smooth touch against your skin. Its natural properties makes it ideal for people with sensitive skin and it can have a healing effect on certain skin conditions. However, natural silk has a potentially large environmental impact compared to other natural fibres, and a single silk garnet requires dissolving thousands pupating silk larvae in boiling water.
A promising natural alternative is Milk Silk. Its skin friendly breathable material and it has a softness that cannot be beaten by any other fabric. Neither the softest cotton nor rayon is as soft, smooth, and kind to human skin as true Milk Silk Fabric. Big downside as extremely poor characteristics for natural milk silk fabric is it`s durability, stability and maintenance. In addition natural Milk Silk also raises considerable ethical concerns since is made from food. Farmers are required to genetically manipulate animals to produce the silk protein in their milk. Or alternatively chemicals needs to be added to turn waste milk product into silk-like fabrics; a hazardous and expensive process.
