Pure silk has been treasured for thousands of years. Soft, smooth and luxurious, it is ideal for sensitive skin. Silk is a natural insulator, providing thermal warmth in cooler temperatures. Its also perfect for hot weather. Highly breathable and moisture wicking, it releases heat and moisture into the air to keep you dry and comfortable.
New Zealand Nature clothing is made from ‘filament’ silk where the long, natural threads are directly unwound from the cocoon of the mulberry silkworm. The length of a single thread unwound from a cocoon can be up to 900 metres in length! It is recognised as the highest quality silk. This versatile, knit fabric is incredibly strong and durable relative to its lighter weight. It retains its shape, is (gentle) machine washable and quick to dry.
Silk Thermal Underwear
Silk Long Underwear, or long johns, are ideal for when you need the extra thermal warmth, but you don’t want thicker undergarments. Silk feels like a ‘second skin’ for perfect freedom of movement beneath your outer layers and is exceptionally lightweight so you’ll forget you're wearing it. Silk Long Underwear can be worn year round in colder climates and it performs well underneath all styles of clothing – from leisure to work wear to recreational.
New Zealand Nature Silk Long Underwear is supremely comfortable and feels soft and smooth against your skin. Natural silk threads are knitted into a premium quality, single knit (jersey) fabric – perfect for underwear. This versatile, stretchy material has a smooth sheen and, considering its fineness, is extremely strong and durable.
Silk Long Underwear also makes excellent pyjamas and are particularly beneficial for people with limited mobility. The silk slides smoothly across bedding making movement easier.
