When you start wearing scarves as part of your style, you want to make sure you're wearing a material that is considered fashionable. But with so many different fabrics that exist for scarves, it can be hard to decide which is the best material. In this post, we will give our recommendation for what is the best fabric for fashion scarves by going over how it compares with other fabrics.
Why is Mulberry Silk used for Scarves
Mulberry silk is the most popular material used by manufacturers and fashion designers when making fashion scarves.
The reason mulberry silk is used in scarves is because of it has the best weight. Silk is a light and breathable material, making it comfortable to wear. But it also has enough weight to it that it drapes fashionably.
Silk, as a natural fibre, is the best durable material for fashion scarves. Colours also look nicer on mulberry silk because of how silk reflects light. In addition to bringing out the colours, silk takes on a silvery, fashionable look.
Mulberry Silk Compared to Other Materials
One popular fabric used in fashion scarves is cashmere. Cashmere is a type of wool. Like silk, it is a light fabric, but usually only becomes softer with time, and only if the cashmere scarf is properly maintained.
Cotton is another classic scarf material, but not often considered fashionable. It does not retain heat as well as silk. It is also a very absorbent material, meaning it has to be washed often as it absorbs sweat particles. Silk is better because it is hydrophobic, and will not absorb sweat as easily.
Another popular scarf material is satin. Satin is similar to silk as it combines silk and polyester. It can vary in it qualities, from shine, thickness, flexibility and weight. Silk is often considered the best luxurious material as silk requires much more skill to weave into something wearable.
