GRADE A SILK
So the cocoon is spun, the silk is harvested - what next? Firstly, the silk will be sorted, ready for manufacture. Silk threads are graded according to their quality - and their length has a lot to do with this.
Basically, grade A is the best - and Calidad Home silk products are made using only long strand, grade A mulberry silk.
LONG STRAND SILK
Why does this matter? Longer strands of silk make for a softer, smoother fabric. The next stage in making a silk pillowcase concerns weaving the material, so only the finest, longest strands will make the grade.
While cheaper silk products may be made using shorter, lower quality strands, all our silk items are produced from these A grade lengths.
