My Journey Into Natural Silk Clothing- Silk Living Review

Today, I'm going to talk to you about a project that I've been doing for a while, and that is my transition into wearing more natural and sustainable clothing. As you all know, fast fashion these days are filled with clothing made from polyester and artificial fabrics which are cheap, but come at the expense of quality and comfort. These fabrics tend to irritate sensitive skin and don't let your skin breath.

I recently decided to turn my wardrobe into a more natural and sustainable one because I want my clothing to be biodegradable, sustainable and less wasteful. I purchased two lovely pieces of clothing from Silk Living, a luxurious and affordable brand that sells silk clothing for men and women. This post will talk about some of the benefits of silk and review these new items that I have added to my closet, as well as detail my experience wearing the pieces from Silk Living.

A bit about the brand- SilkLiving was founded in 2002, originally just selling silk sleeping bag liners.  The range has expanded and grown to include silk clothing for men and women, and their designs are sold via their website to people all around the world. Pure silk is one of the most sustainable and natural fabrics available to us, and the brand takes this one step further by developing new and practical blends of silk to make their garments with. The result is a practical, stylish and functional range of clothing that can be worn in practically any situation- be it lounging around or hiking!

I am fortunate enough to be able to review 2 items from Silk Living, which I will talk about now. The first item that I got was this gorgeous Silkspun Long Camisole- this luxurious and stylish camisole is made from a unique blend of 72% silk, 13% merino wool and 15% cotton which adds warmth to any outfit while being light and comfortable to wear beneath other tops. The fact that it's made from a blend of 3 natural and delicate materials means that this camisole feels different from anything I've owned. It feels thinner but at the same time, traps more warmth in my body. I'm really impressed with the quality and texture of this camisole.

It is also extremely comfortable to wear on your body as the fabric is so thin and light that you feel like it's a second skin. The camisole has adjustable straps and  doesn't ride up unlike other vests that I've owned, and looks absolutely perfect underneath jackets and sweaters. The camisole comes in a variety of colors which means that there's something for everyone. I am in love with the quality of this piece!

The second item that I got is this lovely Silkspun Long Yoga Pant- as a huge yoga lover, I've always struggled to find a pair of natural pants that I can wear. Most of the pants that are out there are made from polyester or nylon, which is not breathable and feels slightly rough on the skin. However, these Silkspun pants are made from a blend of merino, silk and cotton which gives it an extremely light and airy feel.

I wore it to do yoga, and it's absolutely the best pair of pants that I've ever owned. No lycra or spandex is used in the making of this pair of pants, which may interfere with your body’s natural rhythms. The unique knit fabric provides sufficient natural stretch which accommodates the poses that I have to do for yoga. This pair of pants comes in two different colors, and the Damson colour as shown here looks wonderful with a sports bra or tank top. These pants are surely the best way to feel comfortable whilst looking stylish during yoga!

Overall, I'm never taking my Silkspun garments off as they're so comfortable that I can wear them all day. As part of my journey into natural clothing, I'm throwing out all of my polyester trousers and tops. Silk Living is definitely one of my favourite shops to go to for natural, luxurious and practical clothing. I'd highly recommend them!
