Mulberry Silk Georgette is an exquisitely soft and lustrous Jo Sharp yarn made with 25% Mulberry Silk and 75% Extrafine Merino Wool. Ideal for baby and to wear close to the skin and is a hand wash fabric.
Mulberry Silk is the finest, smoothest and most lustrous silk available on the market. A premium is paid for Mulberry Silk, which was first developed in China and is made from the silkworms of the Bombyx Mori Moth. The moths are kept in a controlled environment, free from noise and strong odor and are fed exclusively on Mulberry leaves. Mulberry Silk is superior to other “wild silks” which are grown from a variety of feeds, and which tend to be rougher in texture, heavier and less lustrous.
