The Maxine cami is reversible with a sweet scoop neckline, or turned around for a more daring V-neck. It is a great alternative to wear with your favorite pair of Christine pajama bottoms, or can be worn as a day-wear piece under a suit jacket or a well loved cardigan!
What quality silk does Christine use? The Maxine Cami is made from luxurious, 19mm silk.
Why isn’t thread count used when talking about silk? Silk is an incredibly fine fibre, and thread counts would be extremely high, regardless of the quality of the silk. So for example, a low-quality silk may have a similarly high thread count to a high-quality silk. For this reason, silk uses an alternative system to measure quality, called momme (mm) weight.
What is momme weight? Momme weight describes the weight of 100 yards of silk, 45 inches wide, in pounds. So, if a fabric is listed with a momme weight of 16mm, it means that 100 yards of the fabric weighs 16 pounds. The best silk lingerie is 19mm or 19 pounds in weight per 100 yards.
