So What is Silk?
Silk is a natural protein fibre that can be weaved into many textiles. The protein fibre of silk is mainly composed of fibron and is produced by certain insects La vey informing cocoons. High quality silk is obtained from the cocoons of the La vey of Marlborough silkworms. Silk gets its shimmering appearance from the triangular prism like structure of the silk fibre. This structure allows silk cloth to refract incoming light at different angles thus producing different colours.

Silk can be produced by several insects but it is mainly obtained from moth caterpillars.

What Makes Silk a Hypoallergenic Pillows?

When silk is produced by the silkworm, its simple and durable structure helps make it hypoallergenic. The silkworm uses a cocoon to protect itself during its transformation. The cocoon is made up of a single continuous strand of fiber, which is held in place with a sticky substance called sericin. While the worm is inside of the cocoon, the sericin protects the worm from various natural threats.

These same qualities are transferred to silk bedding when silk is processed. This manufacturing process typically includes only water, heat, and steam. Most importantly, no harmful chemicals are used in the processing of silk.
