Please note, it’s a creamy off-white, not a pure white. “SOYSILK® brand fiber is made from the residue of soybeans from tofu manufacturing. As early as the 1940s, textile experts dreamed of a fiber made from soy (In fact, Henry Ford had a suit made of soy as an early prototype). SOYSILK® brand fiber offers superior moisture absorption and ventilation properties along with beautiful draping, softness and warmth.
What are the benefits of SOYSILK® brand fiber and how does it differ from other fabrics? It has the softness and smoothness of cashmere; It is beautiful to look at and has excellent wearability; It has the same moisture absorption as cotton but with better moisture transmission, making it more comfortable and sanitary.
SOYSILK® brand fiber is manufactured using new, cutting-edge bioengineering technologies. It is produced by extracting proteins from the residual oils of soybean cake – a liquid “batter” is created and cooked, then the fiber is produced by wet-spinning and stabilized by acetylating, and is then cut into short staples after curling and thermoforming.
It can be washed in home washing machines and air dried. It is not recommended for commercial/industrial washing machines. In textiles, SOYSILK® fabrics are known to be wrinkle-free and have little to no shrinkage.
