Silk

White silk

Silk is a natural protein fiber, some forms of which can be woven into textiles. The protein fiber of silk is composed mainly of fibroin and is produced by certain insect larvae to form cocoons. The best-known silk is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of the mulberry silkworm Bombyx mori reared in captivity (sericulture). The shimmering appearance of silk is due to the triangular prism-like structure of the silk fibre, which allows silk cloth to refract incoming light at different angles, thus producing different colors.

Silk is often woven in a weave called satin that produces a glossy surface. Satin is a weave and not a material, so a satin fabric can made of silk, nylon, or polyester, although some definitions insist that the fabric be made from silk. A common kind of 'artificial silk' is rayon.

Silk has associations with elegance, glamour, romance and opulence. It is used both in outerwear (such as dresses, scarves or ties) and underwear (such as lingerie).

Silk/Satin and sexuality[edit]

Silk/Satin fetishism is a sexual fetishism relating to garments or other articles made of silk. Such interest is usually directed towards the person wearing silk or satin, but it can also be directed towards the garment itself, or to the feel of the garment when worn.

Silk/Satin is also popular in crossdressing.
