About Didymos Silk

Wild silk is a very fine natural animal fiber derived from the cocoon of the silkworm pupae and is a very labour intensive and thus costly process to harvest. Silk is one of the strongest natural fibres, and is thus very supportive.  Similar to linen, silk wicks moisture while its low conductivity keeps warm air circulating close to the skin and acting as an insulator in cool weather. Therefore, it is an ideal fibre to wear year round!  Unlike linen, silk loses up to 20% of its strength when wet and can be pulled out of shape very easily in this state. When wet, silk should be gently pulled into shape and line-dried out of direct sunlight.

What is Schappe Silk?

This Schappe silk is a very appealing silk yarn with fine, natural slubs and nubs and a naturally golden tone that is rare and difficult to find, and giving the fabric a unique character and structure and a very subtle shine.
