Distinguished Silk Manufacturer Lilysilk.com Demonstrates How to Make Silk Comforters in Public

La Harpe, KS (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

Lilysilk.com is well-known for its high quality and delicate craftsmanship among world’s leading silk manufacturers and retailers. Recently, they launched a campaign to demonstrate how to make the silk comforters in public. Hundreds of customers came to the scene, and witnessed the comforter production process. They were surprised by the delicate craftsmanship and admitted that silk is the most luxurious fabric in the world.

It is well known that silk comes from the cocoons of the silkworm. When the cocoon is boiled by Lilysilk workers, the hard cocoon becomes a loose ball of strong, flexible filament measuring over 1,000 meters. Usually, this ball is uncoiled and wrapped onto a spindle for use in the textile industry making everything from clothing to rugs. During silk comforter production, however, the silk filament is not unraveled, but rather stretched into a flat tangled web and layered to form silk floss.

“The cocoons are first boiled to loosen the sericin holding the filaments together and remove the silkworm. Each cocoon is expanded outwardly by hand on a U-shaped wooden rack, and the ball of thread becomes a sheet of tangled fibers,” Jack, the program leader of Lilysilk, explained to the visitors in detail. This sheet is then hand-stretched again on a larger rack along with several other cocoons to make a thick, cottony bundle called silk floss. “It takes hundreds of these bundles to make a silk comforter,” Jack added.

Once enough silk cocoons have been stretched into bundles, the comforter begins to take shape. Workers grab the edges of the bundle and stretch it wide to match the dimensions of the desired comforter, and layer by layer the comforter begins to take shape. It can take anywhere between 100 and 400 of these thin layers to make a comforter, depending on bed dimensions and desired thickness. Jack made a summary of the scene, “Since it takes many cocoons to make each layer, a silk comforter may be composed of thousands of silk cocoons.” Once the silk fiber layers are stacked together, they are sealed inside silk or cotton fabrics and the comforter is complete.

Silk comforters provide excellent insulating properties, but tend to be less bulky than down duvets. Silk is a breathable fabric, making silk comforters comfortable in a wide temperature range. Thin silk comforters are used even in the summer.

About silk comforter care

It is an easy job to do. They only need to be dried under the sun twice a year to maintain their freshness. If more thorough cleaning is required, a silk comforter should be dry-cleaned, since the silk floss layers are damaged by contact with water.
