The enluva silk is made of 100% silk, sewn from a thin, highly elastic jersey material and designed to be worn additionally under the tried and tested enluva wool glove. A good fit and the short flat cuff ensure a good wearing and tactile feeling even with this "double" combination. Silk fibres have special properties that come into perfect use in our application:
Silk is very breathable and absorbs little moisture Silk fabric is fast drying and temperature regulating silk fibres are very tear-resistant and can therefore be processed into very fine, light and yet robust textiles the smooth fibre is hypoallergenic and feels pleasant on the skin silk is resistant to mites, mould and fungi Silk fabric is dimensionally stable and largely crease- and wrinkle-free Silk is a natural fibre and therefore easy to dispose of - without plastic pollution.
Thus, the silk provides additional insulation as well as a pleasant feeling on the skin and forms a perfect combination together with the classic enluva wool glove.
