This is a great gold silk in my shop. This 100% raw silk!!! As you can see there is a hint of green in the weave, the colors keeps changing as you move the silk around.
Raw silk is available in many qualities. It is a soft woven silk, on the smoother side. Indian raw silk is made of silk made by silk worms that have "left the building" before the silk yarn is harvested. That accounts for the knots that are so typical. This silk has the knots, but is much smoother woven.
The weight of this silk is about 60 grams per yard.
What can you do with it?
Indian raw silk is one of the most versatile silks to work with. It is great for patch working, but this silk is absolutely perfect for clothing. You can use for wedding gowns, ring cushions, ties, anything really. It is also a perfect silk to make jackets!
Where is it from?
I bought this raw silk from one of my favorite suppliers in Mumbai, India.

This listing is for a fat quarter (1/4 yard), this is approximately 18 x 21 inch).

Returns & exchanges
Please pay attention to the size of the piece of silk that you are ordering. Most pieces are offered per 1/4 yard (so-called "fat quarter"). If you need a yard you need to order 4 quantities and I will cut one continuous piece of one full yard. If the fabric is offer per yard or per meter it will say in the description of the item (as it will say if you are ordering per 1/4 yard).
I will not cut your fabric before you place an order, all fabrics are custom-cut. For this reason I cannot accept return fabrics unless I made a mistake, or the fabric you received is a totally different one than you expected. Fabrics cannot be returned if you the piece you ordered is exactly as described but smaller than you expected.
If you have second thoughts after receiving your order, but the order has been completed correctly, it cannot be returned. The reason for this is that I have to cut your fabric or ribbon according to your order. I May not be possible to sell that exact size to someone else. I hope you understand!

Custom orders are possible.
