Silk filament yarn
This is the only long naturally occurring continuous fiber, because it is the actual yarn expelled by the silkworm when they make cocoons. There are no hairs, the material smooth and feels pleasant against the skin, and is distinguished for its magnificent drape and the way it shines like a pearl.
Spun silk yarn
Byproducts and unraveled cocoon are spun and become spun silk yarn. The softness and elegant sheen of the spun silk sets it apart and the process is comparatively simple, giving it excellent cost performance.
Silk noil yarn
Short fibers generated by the spun silk manufacturing process (10 -30 mm) are re-spun on a special machine. The characteristic of this yarn is silk 100% but having a simple and plain handmade feel.
Complete farmed cocoon gently and carefully raised in a house, the external appearance of this silk has a high quality and delicacy, like a beautiful and sheltered maiden.
Mulberry silk glows with a beautiful sheen and the light and darkness of the triangular cross section combine to produce a spectacularly distinguished luster.
