Certain fabrics make excellent summer suits. In the hotter months, silk is one of those suit fabrics, alongside cotton and linen, that’s talked about as being a cooler option.
Trouble is, silk suits tend to wrinkle easily. Silk suits are also liable to fade in direct sunlight.
So what about a silk blend suit? You’ll enjoy all of the summer-wear advantages of a lightweight silk suit with the support of wool.
As with all wool blends, your mix should be primarily wool – 80/20 is recognised as the best ratio. Adding 20% silk to the blend also adds a little shine, which makes it a good option for formal evening wear.
What is silk?
Firstly, though, what is silk? Silk is a protein fibre that’s harvested from the larvae cocoons of silkworms. It can be spun into long filaments and woven into textiles. However, it’s very rare to find a 100% silk suit. A blend with wool or cotton is the usual procedure.
