Silk Fabric Supplier in China

Silk fabric is made from natural fiber. It is characterized by its durability and strength. However, it is most popular due to its shine and luster. The silk fabric is also the epitome of luxury. Therefore, it can provide an elegant appearance and soft texture. With its superior properties, silk fabric is widely used in the fashion industry.

Sinosilk offers premium-grade mulberry silk as the primary raw material for silk fabrics. Mulberry silk is a long, uninterrupted fiber formed from the solidification of silk liquid secreted by silkworms during the cocooning process, also known as “natural silk”. Similar to wool, it is one of the earliest animal fibers utilized by humans.

Mulberry silk is highly coveted in the silk fabric market due to its exceptional quality. The fabrics made of mulberry silk can show its characteristics well no matter if they are made into any silk products.

Sinosilk is a professional silk fabric manufacturer that offers a full range of colors, thicknesses, and types. It also comes in different grade selections to meet your specification. Our silk fabrics are offered in wholesale and bulk quantities for your business. Rest assured that we provide the lowest prices, fast delivery, and low MOQ. Send us your inquiries today!

Different Silk Fabric Applications

Evening gown

When it comes to evening gowns, most people envision elegance and high fashion. Choosing the right fabric is crucial for achieving this look. Silk fabrics are the perfect choice, given their luxurious and sophisticated appeal. It’s no surprise that an increasing number of people are opting for silk fabric when making evening gowns.

Dress

Whether it’s the smooth and shiny silk satin, the light and airy silk georgette, or silk crepe de chine with its own character, it is perfect for dresses.

Pajama

Silk fabric is made up of protein fibers with a low coefficient of friction (only 7.4% compared to other fabrics), creating a soft and delicate feel against the skin when wearing silk pajamas. Silk pajamas made from thinner fabrics are perfect for summer, as they are lightweight and breathable, while thicker fabrics are ideal for autumn and winter, providing both warmth and beauty.

Scarf

The silk fabric is smooth and soft, making the scarf not only as a fashion accessory, but also for warmth. The custom printed fabric makes the scarf more fashionable.

Tie

A tie is a symbol of a man’s taste in life, and silk ties are undoubtedly the high end of ties. As a formal wear accessory for men, ties come in various colors and patterns that can be matched to showcase one’s unique personality and style.

Underwear

Silk fabric is highly breathable and moisture-absorbent, making it an excellent choice for undergarments worn close to the body. Its soft and comfortable texture, combined with a great fit, make it particularly suitable for hot summer months.

Bedding

The features of silk fabrics are very beneficial to the skin and hair, and can also be very good for improving one’s sleep.

Shrinkage in Silk Fabrics

The unique structure and raw materials of silk fabrics contribute to a certain degree of shrinkage. We advise you to order a slightly larger size when customizing our silk fabrics to a accommodate this. Shrinkage levels can vary across different fabrics, typically ranging from 2.5% to 15%. Notably, silk crepe de chine and silk georgette fabric exhibit a higher degree of shrinkage when compared to silk satin fabric. Keep this in mind and allocate additional material for your design and crafting needs.

The Production Process of Silk Fabric

  • Raising silkworms: Feeding mulberry silkworms with mulberry leaves.
  • Cocooning: The mulberry silkworms start to form cocoons after four molts, and the whole process takes about 2 days.
  • Boiling cocoon: After the cocoon is formed, it is placed in boiling water to cook the cocoon and prepare it for silk extraction.
  • Reeling: The silk is processed and extracted from the cocoon to become the principle of silk weaving. A cocoon can extract about 1000 meters of silk. A number of silk threads drawn in this way are combined to become raw silk.
  • Weaving: The raw silk is divided into warp and weft after processing, and interwoven into silk fabric according to certain organization rules.

Types of Silk Fabric Processes

Dyeing Process

There is a specialized machine known as the beam dyeing machine designed for dyeing silk fabrics. Unlike general machines, this machine is well-suited for fabrics that are prone to deformation, curling, and prone to issues caused by insufficient warp and weft density, such as silk satin, silk georgette, silk chiffon, silk habotai, silk crepe de chine, and more.

During the dyeing process, the fabrics are rolled up using porous rollers and then loaded into a pressure cooker. Professional chemical pumps are utilized for dyeing, employing a systematic cycle process where the dyeing liquid undergoes two-sided interactive transformations. This meticulous process ensures complete penetration of the rolled fabrics, resulting in optimal dyeing outcomes.

Pre-shrinking Process

Pre-shrinking, also known as mechanical pre-shrinkage finishing, involves the use of physical methods to reduce fabric shrinkage after immersion in water. This process primarily targets controlling the warp (length) shrinkage of the fabric. Typically, silk fabrics experience a shrinkage rate ranging from 5% to 15% before pre-shrinkage. While the standard shrinkage rate of fabrics after pre-shrinking treatment is around 1%.

Silk Satin, silk habotai, silk chiffon, silk organza, and silk stretch satin exhibit a shrinkage rate of approximately 5%, with minimal observable shrinkage. In contrast, silk crepe de chine, silk georgette, and similar fabrics have a shrinkage rate of over 10%. These fabrics require a pre-shrinking process before cutting to prevent shrinkage after they are made into finished products.

Washing Process

The washing process involves washing fabrics in water with softeners or detergents to make them soft and textured. Depending on the length of the wash and the amount of softener used, it is generally categorized as light garment wash, garment wash, and heavy garment wash. After washing, the luster of the fabric becomes duller and looks darker, while giving the illusion of increased thickness.

Sand Washing Process

The sand-washing process is similar to the washing process, but it involves adding alkaline or oxidizing additives to the water, along with an appropriate amount of softener, to enhance the fabric’s texture. Sand-washed fabric acquires a faded effect, making it suitable for vintage-style designs.

The inclusion of alkaline additives disrupts the fabric’s surface structure, resulting in a softer feel and the appearance of surface fluff, which creates the illusion of thickness. However, it is not recommended to use the sand-washing process on thin fabrics, as it may cause the fabric to easily tear.

Soft Finishing

After undergoing a soft treatment, silk fabrics become even softer, smoother, and more skin-friendly. There are generally two methods used to achieve this: chemical treatment and physical treatment.

In chemical treatment, a softener is added during the post-dyeing process of silk fabrics. This addition modifies the dynamic and static friction coefficients on the surface of silk fibers, enhancing their softness. However, excessive use of softeners can lead to fabric damage.

Physical treatment involves utilizing airflow to process silk fabrics, preventing wrinkles and friction caused by mechanical force, and ensuring the fabric remains in optimal condition.

Anti-static Finishing

Silk fabrics can generate static, although to a lesser extent compared to synthetic fiber fabrics. Static is detrimental to the human body, as prolonged exposure to static radiation can induce feelings of anxiety and may lead to symptoms such as headaches, chest tightness, and breathing difficulties.

To address this issue, adding an antistatic agent during the processing of silk fabrics proves effective in mitigating the generation of static and safeguarding people’s daily lives.

Anti-split Process

Splitting is a prevalent issue that often arises when working with silk. It adversely affects the cutting, sewing, and overall durability of silk fabrics. However, employing an anti-splitting process during treatment can offer a robust solution to this problem.

This process enhances the yarn’s anti-slip properties, improves sewing strength, significantly enhances the sewability of silk fabrics, and minimizes the occurrence of needle holes during the sewing process.
