Item details

This fabric was sent to me by a friend in 2010 who was traveling through the Far East. I had asked her to get me some silk fabric and she got me this length in, I think, South Korea. Or maybe Vietnam. I remember she described the country as quite spectacular.

It is so beautiful with it's shimmering purples, pinks and blues, embroidered dragonflies of all kinds on a black background. Measures 2 yards, 20 inches, and 37 inches wide.

The dragonflies are woven into the fabric, not printed. I can't capture the depth of these flyers, but they are truly superb.

Now, straight up-I think this might be a silk blend. It drapes like satin, is thick like a brocade. I removed a 6x4 inch corner to wash and it did great in a cold hand-wash bath. My friend doesn't sew, and I am sure she bought what she though was pure silk. But this fabric is sturdier than a pure silk length would be. And that is good!

I never could decide what to make from it. I was leaning towards a shell with cap sleeves, then a scarf. The back is quite lovely as well. Finally I realized it was too special to lay in a plastic bag unseen by an admiring public. Please make something you will wear and feel gorgeous.

General info:

PLEASE! Make sure your address is correct with Etsy or Paypal if you use it! If you have recently moved, go into your account there and get that address changed everywhere it should be, as I can't be responsible if something goes to a wrong address.

I use Etsy labels for all US shipping, so make doubly sure your address is correct both places. If you would like shipping to a gift address, please send me a convo after your purchase.

I ship every other day for domestic packages. We no longer have weekend service in the village, so no Saturday mailing. International mailing takes a few extra days as I must travel to the next town for that mailing. I use International tracking numbers for your protection.
PLEASE retain shipping emails from Etsy that you receive as I print your label-this contains your tracking number as well as the time and date I dropped off your package so you'll know it has left my hands.

You get tracking for free, but Insurance is optional. Please ask for it if you want it and we'll get it arranged via a separate invoice if needed.


Payments

I accept all kinds of payments by card through Etsy Direct checkout, no Paypal account needed. If you do have a Paypal account you'd like to use, you can use it through Direct checkout as well. Simple!
Because of abuse by some, I have discontinued Reserve listings except for special shipping arrangements and custom work. I apologize for this, but non-pick-ups and other assorted problems makes this necessary.
