Smoothness! Touch it by hand, and feel the smoothness. Soft, waxy feeling is unique characteristic of silk products. When pressed on the surface of the product, a pulling feeling or very slight stickness will observed.
Mutual friction of silk products will create a crisp sound, commonly known as wire-ming.
Silk Lustre is different from other fabrics. It is shimmering. The shimmering appearance of silk is due to the triangular prism-like structure of the silk fiber, which allows silk cloth to refract incoming light at different angles, thus producing different colors. This “shot” effect gives a surface that “shines” and appears to change colour as the angle of light on it changes. Synthetic fabrics shine white, no matter what the angle of the light.
Silk can be hand-woven or machine-woven. Hand-woven silk has its own individual characteristics. Each piece is unique. Look for slubbing, and slight, very minor variations in the evenness of the weave. These are natural and to be expected. Machine-woven silk will have a perfectly even weave with no flaws and very little character.
Synthetic fabrics will mostly also look perfect.
