MANTILITY silk scarves are warmer than you imagine!
Silk is known for its luxurious look and feel. Silk is also a wonderful all-year fibre!
As the weather gets colder, your priorities shift from aesthetics to practicality. In times like these, it often feels like sacrifice is imminent; you can either dress comfortably or dress well. If you’ve ever seen someone wearing a silk scarf, you know they look pretty small and delicate. But if you’ve ever worn one, you know they’re deceptively large. Once you’ve learned silk scarves aren’t as dainty as they appear, you mightn’t be so surprised to learn they’re incredibly warm.
Why? For one thing, all that fabric does a lot for insulation plus, since it’s wrapped around your neck, it’s pretty efficient, too. Its naturally tightly woven fibre helps to shield our skin from cold air, and its low thermal conductivity does not readily transfer our body heat to the environment. With its great temperature regulating qualities, it will keep you at an even keel even as you transition from the warmth of indoors to the cold of outdoors.
Further, silk is not only wonderfully soft and comfortable to skin, but also divinely light to wear under thick coat, keeping you warm, comfortable, flexible, and stylish, unlike the woollen scarves, which can be quite itchy, bulky, and irritating to the skin. For decades silk scarves have served as an easy way to spice up a boring outfit.
You can stay warm while looking chic and trendy. Silk scarves are the perfect solution to particularly breezy fall and snowy winter days!
If you’re looking for a fabric that will help you maintain a comfortable temperature, that’s lightweight enough to adapt to layering for extra warmth, and feels as soft as butter against the skin, silk won’t let you down.
Below are a few examples, adding colour and warmth to a simple wool turtleneck and jeans, a shirt or a winter coat.
