Silk Rug Cleaning
Silk is beautiful and comes from the cocoon of the silkworm. Silk threads are deceptively strong even though it is such a fine fiber. Silk is also resistant to some molds.
Real silk rugs have a high knot count and very intricate design patterns. They have real silk fringes that are actually an extension of the rug and not sewn on. An interesting fact to distinguish real silk from artificial silk is to rub it – real silk is warm while artificial silk is cold.
Silk is a natural fiber but because it takes such a long time to produce, it is expensive. But it’s worth the wait for its sheer beauty. You have to be careful with cleaning a silk rug as the wrong cleaning agents and hot water can also damage the fibers.
