Actress Jane Birkin’s mother may have been onto something when she told her daughter, “When you’ve got nothing left, all you can do is get into silk underwear and start reading Proust.” These throws are 100% silk. What? That’s a thing? Yes! Benefits of silk include: smooth fibers of silk help keep moisture close to the skin, bringing comfort during hot flashes, and aids in better sleep. Some even say that sleeping with silk has age defying powers and if that wasn't enough - those of us that are sensitive are rarely allergic to silks.. It's basically the perfect gift for our even the most sensitive of our loved ones.
