This fabric is pure silk and so has natural 'slubs' (heavier woven lines) in the fabric which is part of its charm. Silk is a luxury cloth and a natural fibre made by weaving the silk produced by Silk Worms when making their cocoons. It is cool against the skin and has a stiff drape despite being a lightweight cloth making it perfect for pleated and fitted dresses and garments.
This particular silk has been woven with a brightly coloured check/ plaid to produce a vibrant and eye-catching cloth. This fabric can be used for dressmaking but also for craft.
This fabric is 55" (140cm) wide and sold per half metre or metre.
Multiple purchases of this fabric will be cut straight from the roll as one full length piece.
Please note: If ordering a sample this will be a small clothes peg sized snippet from the edge of the roll which will measure approx 3cm x 6cm
