Silk on the Inside
A Luxana Baby Cocoon Comforter starts with 100% long floss Mulberry Silk, the highest quality silk for purchase, known as the “Queen of All the Fabrics”.
It is the strongest natural fiber in the world. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic by repelling dust mites and resisting mold and fungi. It has high anti-oxidant and antibacterial activity. The structure and content of amino acids in silk proteins is very similar to the skin of the human body and does not trigger any immune response, allowing it to ease conditions such as eczema, sensitive skin, and allergic rashes as well as asthma. The amino acids in silk can also help calm the nervous system. Raw silk contains sericin, a protein created by Bombyx mori silkworms. The high hydroxyl amino acid content of sericin (approx. 46%) is of particular importance for the water-binding capacity which regulates the skin’s moisture. Fibroin, the chief constituent in silk, absorbs and dissipates moisture very well, allowing air to pass freely, making silk an ideal material for servicing the purposes of thermal regulation. It is also naturally fire-retardant. Silk’s light and fluffy properties when utilized as a filling make for the best in comforter creation.Learn About Bamboo
