ONE YARD of Black 100% Silk suiting fabric is 58 1/4 inches wide. Good weight with matte finish and very subtle sheen. Slightly crisp, with natural raised weave lines running horizontal to the finished edge. It is not a flimsy silk at all, and is suitable for lighter jackets, dresses, skirts, tops, and hats. It was being used to make unlined Capri pants in the mid-late 80's in Canada and worked well. This was a European import at that time of very high quality. It is very easy to work with and is not slippery. The black is nice and deep- most of the photos make it look lighter than it is- see the outdoor pic for the colour. It has no holes, stains, tears, or odors. The outside of the horizontal fold may have picked up some dust in spots from being on the end of the bolt. There does not appear to be any fading along the fold line- if there is any trace, it is very faint and would be running with the length. The bolt is many yards and not easy to check completely. The price is reasonable on this fabric taking this into account. There is a continuous length of at least 20 yards. If you are interested in quantity we will gladly send a sample. Postal rates will change with quantity ordered so please contact.
