Thai silk is a handwoven silk cloth from Thailand. It is made from domesticated moths (often with the filament hand reeled) and with the yarns usually dyed brilliant colors, woven of two colors for iridescence, or printed. It is a plain weave, lustrous fabric of varying weights. It usually has slight slubs in the weft.
