Often called "raw silk," Silk Noil has a nubby feel and matte surface resembling cotton in its texture. Noil is a breathable and versatile fabric, great for all seasons and multi-destination travel. Silk Noil is yielded from the silk waste of the spun processes, causing unique fiber variation. Subtle variations in color and texture are inherent to the natural beauty of our Silk Noil fabric. Silk is a natural, durable, yet biodegradable material that has a very low environmental impact.
Care: To best keep your silk noil in its original condition, we recommend eco dry cleaning. However, silk noil is also the most washable silk! Washed raw silk has a soft, lived-in texture. If you choose this method, you may experience a 2-5% shrinkage the first time you wash your silk. Hand wash in cold water; do not machine wash or wring. Use a gentle detergent without bleach, peroxide, or citrus, since harsh additives can break down the silk fibers. Hang dry or lay flat to dry. Please note that darker colors may bleed or fade more quickly with washing. Dark colors can also fade or streak if washed, so dry clean in order to retain richer colors. Low iron or steam if needed.
