The Hanoi top is made of 100% raw silk. Silk containing sericin is called raw silk. Raw silk fibers have been compared to synthetic fibers, however the smoothness and the non slippery texture sets Raw Silk apart from the rest. A single piece of continuous raw silk thread that is used to produce a cocoon is about 1 kilometer long. In its natural state, raw silk’s color ranges from light beige to yellow. Silk is biodegradable, renewable, antibacterial, flame retardant. Raw silk is also made in a way where no chemicals or other toxic treatments are needed.
