Pure silk has been treasured for thousands of years and not only because it’s beautiful. Soft, smooth and luxurious against your skin, silk is also a natural insulator providing thermal warmth in cooler temperatures, and releasing warmth to keep you cool when it’s hot. Silk is highly breathable and draws moisture away, releasing it into the air, to keep you dry and comfortable. It is well suited to sensitive skin.
New Zealand Nature clothing is made from ‘filament’ silk where the long, natural threads are directly unwound from the cocoon of the mulberry silkworm. It’s recognised as the highest quality silk. This versatile, knit fabric is incredibly strong and durable relative to its lighter weight and yields garments with a smooth sheen. It retains its shape, it will not pill and optimises silk’s inherent breathable properties.
This Silk Sleeveless Top is made from premium quality, double knit, stretch silk. Ideal for outerwear, it is supremely comfortable and looks wonderful. It has a natural sheen, drapes beautifully and is non-transparent. Double knit silk is durable and easy to care for. Even if it is damaged, due to the interlocking (double knit) weave, it will not ladder (run). It’s crease resistant, machine washable and quick drying.
Please follow instructions on the care label attached to each garment. It is machine washable, please use the delicate cycle with a very mild detergent.Lay flat to dry avoiding direct sunlight. Please do not tumble dry.
"My silk order arrived today and I am delighted! I've been looking for well-made silk-knit garments for years everywhere... I'm so glad I decided to buy literally from the opposite side of the world - your products are very well made of exceptionally thick and smooth material. Honestly, I've never seen that quality anywhere before. I'll definitely buy more from you in the future." - K.S., Helsinki, Finland

Tips for Successful Measuring
- Measure yourself when dressed only in your underwear.
- Keep tape measure firm, but not tight.
- Chest/Bust: With arms at sides, measure around the fullest part; under arms and across shoulder blades. Ensure tape is kept horizontal and don't hold your breath!
- Waist: Measure around natural waist, at height of navel.
- Hip: Stand with your feet together. Measure around the fullest part of your bottom at the top of your leg, about 20-25cm / 8-10 inches below waist.
Top tip: if you do not own a tape measure, simply mark a piece of non-elastic string with your measurements and then measure the string using a ruler. These body measurements provide a classic fit.
