1. Silk Yarn


Silk yarn is highly breathable and hygroscopic and contains 18 amino acids, which can promote the metabolism of the human body and stabilize the spirit. It has the following characteristics:

- Elegant and noble, soft and bright.

- The tissue is porous and can absorb a large amount of gas, forming an excellent warm layer.

- With 1.5 times the hygroscopicity of cotton fiber, it can quickly absorb and distribute human sweat.

- Low static electricity, good skin-friendly and comfortable.

- The fabric's ignition point is between 300 and 460°C. In case of fire or other accidents, it is difficult to burn and can protect yourself.

2. Bamboo Yarn


Bamboo yarn products have the characteristics of good air permeability, rough feel, unique fancy effect and simulated natural unevenness. They have been sold in the domestic market since 1985.
