I bought several lengths of this silk for shirts, because I had always wanted bespoken silk shirts. I was told, by many, that this would be a very foolish idea, because of a certain stereotypical notion of how silk would behave. It turns out to be all wrong, and I – and Acorn – was right. The shirts are very breathable, very comfortable, and for some reason, very adaptable to the temperature and environment as well – cool during heat and warm during cold – which makes for excellent all around shirt fabric. It also tends to wick moisture away instead of soaking it all in, so not as much sweat stains and such. It also tends to roll off a lot of rain droplets before it gets soaked, so there is some mild water-repellence to it as well. It can be laundered in cold and mild settings, using all natural silk detergent or hair shampoo – in a pinch, even wool shampoo will do as well – so the shirts are just fantastic. However, the downside is that one really has to press these shirts with authority after laundry to get them back to shape and size.
All in all, a silk fabric worth paying for, and then some more.
