Spun silk fabrics seasonal collection
Spun silk is made of thread spun from the short silk filaments left over from classic silk production, so in a way it’s actually made of “waste” (and is sometimes referred to as waste silk) but it would be a big mistake to call it second rate. Spun silk fabrics are soft, comfortable, and easier to care for than classic silk. Many silk spun fabrics have an attractive, rustic look and interesting, nubby surface. Spun silk excels in casual pieces (pants, dresses, jackets) as well as home decor. Learn more about the many varieties of natural silk in our post on types of silks.
Natural spun silk
When silk cocoons are processed into filament silk, the shorter filaments that are left over are gathered and spun into this fine material to make spun silk fabrics. Our spun silks are popular for their lovely, subtle sheen, which is less glossy than classic silk.
