Q1) Are silks made of silk?
Originally, silks or "colors" were made of silk.
Today, more durable and practical fabrics are used instead. These two types
of racing colors are known as traditional and stretch. Traditional silks are
made of nylon and stretch are made from a swimsuit-type fabric. Most silks
makers offer both.
