Silk is a natural protein fiber that is woven into textiles. It is composed mainly of fibroin that is formed by insect larvae to form cocoons. Silks are produced by several other insects, but generally only the silk of moth caterpillars has been used for textile manufacturing. The triangular prism-like structure of the silk fiber gives it a shimmering appearance of silk.
The silk fabric has a glaze to it, which makes it look royal. Its low conductivity keeps warm air close to the skin during cold weather. Silk come to use mainly for apparels, upholstery in furniture, wall décors, bed linen and table linens. There are various kinds of silk that are available and can be used for beautifying spaces.
The process of crafting silk is quite difficult and takes a lot of time to come to use finally.
