Silk, being a natural product does have a special odor, but it’s not chemical-like smell. It’s natural, healthy odor generated by the fibroin element in silk fiber.
Silk (78% protein) is much stiffer than wool in spite of both being proteins made from amino acids chains. Silk emitted by the silkworm consists of two main proteins, sericin and fibroin, fibroin being the structural center of the silk, and serecin being the sticky material surrounding it.
Our silk filled comforters are 100% natural, and are not manufactured using any harmful chemicals; as a result these products may have a natural silk odor.
The odor of natural silk comforters can be noticed when the package is opened for the first time, and it will dissipate after a few hours and is completely gone after a few days.
