What is Spun silk? Why is it expensive
A: Spun silk is more expensive than other types of silk yarns because of the process and materials used to produce it. Spun silk is made by spinning together short lengths of silk fibers, which requires more labor and materials compared to producing silk filament yarns.
The process of spinning silk fibers into yarn is done by hand, and it requires skilled labor and specialized equipment. Additionally, the raw materials used to produce spun silk, which are the short silk fibers, are also more expensive than the longer silk fibers used for filament yarns.
Another reason that spun silk is more expensive than other types of silk yarns is that it is a luxury product that is associated with high-quality, luxury fabrics. Spun silk is often used to make high-end clothing, home furnishings, and accessories, which are typically more expensive than more common fabrics.
Finally, as spun silk is considered less consumemd, therefore manufacturers tend to charge a premium for spun silk products.
