Silk is an animal fiber and the only long fiber among natural fibers. It is rich in animal protein, which is a collection of amino acids. Silk, which contains 18 amino acids, is produced by silkworms that feed on natural and non-toxic mulberry leaves. A single silkworm cocoon can yield a continuous silk thread measuring up to 1,440 meters in length, making silk one of the longest natural fibers. It is globally recognized as a luxurious fiber with a smooth and dry touch.
Due to the presence of "pores" in silk fibers, silk has properties such as "moisture absorption," "moisture release," "thermal insulation," and "delicate softness."
