Do you know the history of Silk?
According to Chinese tradition, an Empress named Lei-Tzu was drinking tea when a cocoon from a mulberry tree fell into her tea.She watched as it unraveled. When she picked it up, she found it to be a very fine fabric. The Empress developed Sericulture which is the science of silk production. She learned how to farm silkworms, to spool the fibers, to check it for strength and dependability, and to weave it into clothing. For over 3000 years, Sericulture went on to be a secret that only the Chinese knew. The Empress was known as the “Silk Goddess” or her most famous name was “Si-Ling Chi” which means “Lady of the Silk Worm”.
Soulknits has a beautiful collection of Silk Scarves in a choice of colors. These scarves are embroidered with a floral pattern and crochet trim on the edge. The beauty of silk is that it cools and warms simultaneously. Silk is naturally wrinkle-resistant, glossy, hypoallergenic, and easy to care for. Always store silk in a dry dark place. This fabric is very sensitive to light and will develop discolored and faded areas if left unprotected. Do not store in plastic because the fabric needs to breathe.
