Hi there, welcome to my blog! Today I want to talk about one of my favorite fabrics: organic silk. You might be wondering what organic silk is and why it's so special. Well, let me tell you!
Organic silk is produced from organic farming practices that respect the life cycle of the silkworms and the ecosystem they live in. Organic silk farmers do not use pesticides, fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs) to grow the mulberry trees that feed the silkworms. They also do not boil or gas the silkworms to extract the silk fibers. Instead, they wait for the silkworms to complete their metamorphosis and emerge as moths before harvesting the cocoons. This way, no animal is harmed or killed in the process. Organic silk yarn is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and Organic Content Standard (OCS), which are the world's leading standards for organic textiles.
Organic silk has many benefits over conventional silk.
-Organic silk is softer and smoother, because it retains more of the natural sericin protein that coats the silk fibers. Sericin has anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties, which can help soothe and nourish your skin.
-Organic silk is hypoallergenic, breathable, and durable. It does not contain any harmful residues or allergens that can irritate the skin or cause health problems
-Organic silk regulates body temperature and moisture, making it comfortable to wear in any season
-organic silk has a unique and natural beauty that cannot be replicated by synthetic fabrics. It has a rich color and a subtle sheen that enhance its elegance and quality.
Another benefit of organic silk is that it's more ethical and sustainable. By choosing organic silk, you are supporting the farmers who grow organic mulberry trees and raise silkworms without using pesticides or antibiotics. You are also reducing the environmental impact of silk production, which can involve a lot of water, energy and waste. Organic silk is biodegradable and compostable, which means it won't end up in landfills or oceans. Organic silk is more than just a fabric; it is a statement of your values and your style.
