Frequently Asked Questions

Jockey Silks

     

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.

 

Thanks to Classic Silks USA for their help with this topic.
