Do you know why silk is one of our favorite fabrics here at Ellie Kai? Here's the scoop:
- Silk is one of the most hypoallergenic fabrics due to its natural protein structure, and tends not to irritate sensitive skin.
- Silk has temperature-regulating properties which make it a breathable, all-climate fabric-- keeping you comfortable all year-round. Silk has moisture wicking properties and can absorb up to a third of its weight in water before you even notice! (Keep that one in your back-pocket as a fun party fact.)
- Silks fibers are naturally elastic, and can stretch up to 20% without breaking.
- The fabric is soft and lightweight, making it the ideal layering piece and giving you ample freedom to style your silks... your way.
With all these impressive properties, plus a variety of colors and patterns to choose from, Ellie Kai's silks truly speak for themselves.
