Pure silk has been treasured for thousands of years and not only because it’s beautiful. Soft, smooth and luxurious against your skin, silk is also a natural insulator providing thermal warmth in cooler temperatures, and releasing warmth to keep you cool when it’s hot. Silk is highly breathable and draws moisture away, releasing it into the air, to keep you dry and comfortable. It is well suited to sensitive skin.
New Zealand Nature clothing is made from ‘filament’ silk where the long, natural threads are directly unwound from the cocoon of the mulberry silkworm. It’s recognised as the highest quality silk. This versatile, knit fabric is incredibly strong and durable relative to its lighter weight and yields garments with a smooth sheen. It retains its shape and optimises silk’s inherent breathable properties.
This Silk Nightie is made from premium quality, double knit, stretch silk. Ideal for outerwear and nightwear, it is supremely comfortable and looks wonderful. It has a natural sheen, drapes beautifully and is non-transparent. Double knit silk is durable and easy to care for. Even if it is damaged, due to the interlocking (double knit) weave, it will not ladder (run). It’s crease resistant, machine washable and quick drying.
Silk is a delicate fabric and can be damaged by washing with harsh detergents and/or on vigorous washing cycles.
For best care, wash separately to avoid pilling. Gentle machine wash inside garment bag, or hand wash. Use mild detergent. Do not bleach. Lay flat to dry, avoiding direct sunlight. Do not tumble dry. Can be dry cleaned.
