Q: Are JagBags 100% silk?
Absolutely! Our silk is 100% habatoi silk with a weight of 8 momme. It is absolutely not blended with any other fibre. Any fibre described as art, artificial or synthetic silk isn't silk - whatever it's maker say.
Price is a good indication too - if something's described as silk and it's very cheap - it's not silk! Pure silk is an expensive product, that's a fact of life.
Q: What is Habotai silk?
Habatoi silk, is soft and supple but is also very durable. The density of its weave ensures that it's not only hard wearing but that it also has excellent performance, wicking away moisture from the body in hot climates and adding extra insulation and warmth when used as a sleeping bag inner liner.
Q: Where are JagBag liners made?
Despite being based in Scotland, Paul was keen that JagBags were still made in their country of origin, New Zealand - and this is still the case today. JagBags are still made and dyed in New Zealand by a small team from the same high quality silk, sourced from China.
Q: Why should I use a JagBag silk liner?
Q: How do I wash my Jag Bag
Gently! Silk is a wonderful natural material and individual threads are, size for size, stronger than steel. BUT, it needs to be looked after properly. Keep your JagBag clean and it will last for years, mis-treat it and it will wear out in months. Hot water and hot air will degrade your silk very quickly. Here's how to look after your Jag Bag silk sleeping bag liner.
* If you have no choice but to use a washing machine use travel wash or shampoo and use the 'Handwash' or 'Delicate' setting.
