Silk is an animal fiber produced by certain insects and arachnids as a building material for cocoons and webs, some of which can be used to make fine fabrics. In commercial use, silk is almost entirely limited to filaments from the cocoons of domesticated silkworms. Silk is a natural protein-based high molecular weight polymer spun into fibers by arthropods, mainly silkworms, mites, and spiders. The best type of silk is obtained from the cocoons of silkworms (Bombyx mori).

Silk fibers are extensively used in the textile industry because of their excellent dyeing affinity and high luster. Additionally, to diversify the applications of the product, silk is often blended with lyocell and polyester.
