A smooth Silk Crepe that drapes and moves like liquid. This fabric is captivatingly lustrous when washed on cold or dry cleaned. When washed on hot, as we typically have done for our garments, it has a muted, ultra-soft feel with a barely-there sheen visible only with movement. This extremely high-quality silk was developed at a custom, medium weight and wide 55" width just for us. Meant to be worn, not coddled.
Suitable for bottoms, tops, dresses, and home decor projects.
Silk is a natural fiber and while this weave is a finer, more consistent look than some of our other fabrics, it still has occasional variations. Color will vary from dye lot to dye lot—if you need consistent color for several projects, order the yardage all at once so that we can give you one continuous cut from the same bolt.
Silk is a strong fiber, but it's still a natural material that can and will break down over time. To ensure your garment lasts as long as possible, do not use this fabric for tight or fitted garments where there will be tension or pressure on seams. Consider doubling up the material for high friction areas, and take care to wash and clean the fabric gently and often.
