Raw Silk (or Silk Noil) is a fabric made using the shorter fibres from the leftover in ordinary silk production. Raw Silk fibres contain the protein Sericin which is a glue-like substance. Sericin comprises about 20 - 30% of Raw Silk and functions as a protective coating layer for the fabric. For this reason, the surface has a soft and nubby feel and retains anti-bacterial-, thermal-, antioxidative- and hydrophilic properties.
