There's nothing better than a woolly hat on a cold day.  But why choose to wear one lined with silk?  We share 5 great reasons why silk could be a welcomed addition to your head-wear...



1. Protective Layer

From its glossy sheen to its stunning drape, silk is considered one of the most loved fabrics in the world.  But did you know it is also one of the most loving?  The smooth surface of silk means your hair can glide across it without coming up against resistance.  This protects your hair from snags, tangles and breakage, which rough fibres such as wool and cotton can trigger.

2. Keeps your hair and scalp hydrated

The natural properties of silk keep moisture in your hair and out of your hat, unlike wool, which can leave hair dry, weak and prone to damage.

3. Benefits all hair types

Silk is gentle on all hair types and especially benefits afro, curly and dry hair that can require extra care.  Use silk hair scarves and pillowcases to benefit while you sleep too.

4. All-climate fabric

Silk has temperature-regulating properties that make it ideal for keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the warmer months.

 5. Silk is hypoallergenic

Silk naturally repels bacteria, mould and dust mites.  Those with allergies often benefit from using silk items such as duvets and bed sheets.
