With the development of the times, biology and textile technology industry has been greatly promoted. Domestic and foreign research focus on silk fibroin  gradually shifted from the traditional textile field to the biomedical textiles field .the research on silk fibroin wound dressing is gradually developed, which has a great impact on accelerating wound repair. Studies have shown that the effect of wound repair is closely related to the physical and chemical properties of the raw materials. These characteristics also show that silk can be designed flexibly according to the requirements of dressing. Similarly, the production process of silk fibroin dressings and the association between adhesion and drug delivery also have a great impact. This article will elaborate the performance characteristics, advantages and problems in the research process of silk fibroin dressings, including silk fibroin membrane, silk fibroin hydrogel, silk fibroin scaffold, nanofiber membrane and other materials, as well as some new silk fibroin wound dressings currently under research, and clarify the development direction and outlook of silk fibroin in the future.
