Silk is a natural protein fiber composed mainly of fibroin. The glimmer of silk is a result of the triangular prism structure of the fibers that make up the silk. Mulberry is the highest quality of silk available on earth.
Mulberry silk originates from China where silkworms are fed only mulberry leaves. The silkworm cocoons are later on harvested into the best quality, natural mulberry silk fabric. Free of any harmful chemicals!
Momme (MM) is a measurement of the quality of silk. A higher momme count means more durable and better quality silk, with 6 momme being the lowest quality and 30 momme the highest quality.
Note: higher momme count means more opaque and denser material. The ideal momme count for a silk pillowcase, for instance, will be different to that of a piece of silk clothing.
