These very fine silk filaments undergo degumming (removing sericin, a viscous binding protein), spinning and precision-braiding. A surface treatment waterproofs the silk filament. This process results in silk without any undesirable wicking, i.e. a non-capillary, hydrophobic suture with a smooth surface.
The black and blue SILK (‘virgin silk’) is
- very supple
- exceptional knotting properties
- excellent knot security
- minimal sawing effect
