Why Silk Is Called Queen Of Fibres
Silk, a protein fiber, is the undoubtedly queen of fibers. It comes from the cocoon of the silk worm and requires a great deal of handling and processing. No other fiber has the texture, sheen, strength and drape of silk, whether the fabric is woven, knitted, or knotted. Manmade fibers such as rayon and soy only attempt to imitate the natural silk fiber produced by the Bombyx Mori moth. But, there is no doubt that they are still limitations and cannot cope up with the natural fiber.
