More expensive items, more care need to be paid. However, if some rip occurred by careless on your luxury silk duvet, how to sew it up? Is the common needle okay? Of course, the answer is no.
When working with simple reconstructed silk long underwear that have curves, use long lai needles which bend to the curves and have memory. Lai needles can be purchased in Hawaii and from some floral supply companies. Cut off the eye of the needle so it does not catch on the threads. Sand and coat them with clear nail polish so the metal doesn’t rust or stain the silk sheet. Do not anxious about it when such unexpected accidents happen.
