Silkbody helps you maintain a natural balance between your body and the outside world. Silkbody’s protein fibres warm naturally to your body’s temperature and provide a protective layer, trapping warm air like a fine second skin. Wearing Silkbody helps you adapt to external climate fluctuations with its natural breathability and moisture management.
Silk is exothermic, releasing energy as heat when absorbing moisture. This means your Silkbody is warm even when wet.
Silk is one of the safest fibres you can have next to your skin. Where synthetics melt, silk burns to harmless ash. It is even more heat resistant than wool, decomposing at a temperature of around 170 degreesC.
Climate control: Silk keeps your skin dry because the hygroscopic silk fibre will absorb one third its own weight in water without feeling damp. The absorbed moisture is evaporated into the environment or absorbed by outer clothing layers. Silkbody will dry very fast, on or off the body.
A single silk fibre has a tensile strength equal to steel wire of the same diameter. Our fabrics are very strong and durable, they will not go into holes or rip easily.
