When I hear the word silk, it creates a sensation that I can feel, smell and taste. It is a texture, a luxury, and an indulgence. It is the feeling of being pampered and soothed.
Silk production dates back to 2700 BC. Silkworm larvae are fed with mulberry leaves and after about the fourth moult, they climb on a twig placed near them and spin silken cocoons. The silkworm spins approximately a mile of filament and completely encloses itself in a cocoon in about two or three days. The amount of usable silk in each cocoon is small. About 2500 silkworks are required to produce a pound of raw silk.
Run your skin over a piece of silk fabric and soak in the smooth, luxurious texture. The same luxury sensation can be felt by burning a Milkhouse Silk candle and closing your eyes and soaking in the fragrance. Soft florals arrive on a musk and tonka bean base to create a relaxing aroma that is very natural and beautifully balanced.
This delicious Silk cocktail will also deliver you to a special, serene place. It is combining the smooth texture of Irish cream with a soft vanilla vodka and a splash of Amaretto. Served over ice, it is sure to create a silken mouth feel.
This drink will make a perfect night cap for a quiet evening at home. Try it served with some delectable champagne grapes and a soft, smooth blue cheese.
Or how about as a dessert with a side of some rich chocolate truffles?
