Our clothing is fabulous for any occasion, but our fabrics were originally developed with an active life in mind. With a love of outdoor activities, and an aversion to the synthetics used in most high-performance outdoor garments, Silkbody designers used science to develop our fabrics. The result is a proprietary range that has all the technical benefits of contemporary synthetic clothing, plus the advantage of being 100% natural.

Unique to SilkLiving, Silkspun is our all-season signature fabric. The combination of 72% silk, 13% Merino wool and 15% cotton comes together to form a luxurious knitted jersey blend. Wear on its own for natural temperature regulation in the heat, or layer it for luxurious, bulk-free insulation. Silkspun is perfect for all environments.

An expedition-weight base layer, the Cellular fabric is ideal for extreme heat and extreme cold. Its unique fabric structure traps maximum insulating air next to the skin, for warmth in the cold. In hot temperatures this same cellular fabric-structure enhances moisture dispersal to keep your skin dry.
These silk-only fabrics are super soft and luxurious, breathable and moisture absorbent. They are especially perfect for sensitive skin. We use knitted Puresilk in various weights and fabric types depending on the application.

The garment is amazingly soft and warm yet extremely lightweight and breathable.
