The Best Silk Scarves

hand painted square silk scarf - the meadowsShopping for the best silk scarves can be difficult because of the large number of inferior products that are intentionally mislabeled. When you are shopping for a silk scarf you want 100% real silk, not polyester or some other imitation fabric. You can often tell right away that an item is not genuine silk just by looking at the price. Simply put, if the price seems to good to be true, then it probably isn’t real silk. If you think about how much work goes into producing silk fabric— from raising the silkworms to reeling and spinning out the threads from each cocoon, followed by dyeing and weaving—it is clear that you’re not going to find a genuine silk scarf selling for under $5. That being said, a scarf is a very simple shaped item to make, though, and they don’t require a terribly large amount of material. So scarves are actually one type of silk item that you can find at good prices. The following are some of the best silk scarves that you can find for purchase online. Only 100% real silk scarves are included here, no polyester imitations.
