Silk containing sericin is called raw silk. The gummy substance, affording protection during processing, is usually retained until the yarn or fabric stage and is removed by boiling the silk in soap and water, leaving it soft and lustrous, with weight reduced by as much as 30 percent. The degumming process leaves silk lustrous and semitransparent, with a smooth surface that does not readily retain soil. Silk is moisture-absorbent, retaining as much as a third of its weight in moisture without feeling damp, and has excellent dyeing properties
