Off-white creme colored highly textured silk crepe - 34 inch (86.3 cm) remnant

Sorry, this item has sold.

This listing is for a 34 inch (86.3 cm) remnant. This fabric can also be purchased by the yard here: www.etsy.com/listing/655210468/off-white-creme-colored-highly-textured?ref=shop_home_active_7&frs=1

This beautiful silk fabric is unused, old stock and would make an amazing scarf, cushion cover, clutch purse or pouch. it can even be used for quilting projects. It is in excellent condition. This silk can be used for apparel but please remember that kimono fabric is not as wide as other fabrics.

This silk is a crepe silk and it has a wonderful "bumpy" texture and a fluid drape that has body. Unlike other crepe silks, this silk also has some slubbing that is similar to pongee or tsumugi silk. There are also short, loose threads in addition to the shibo (wrinkles) and the slubbing. The loose threads are similar to the threads seen in hige-tsumugi (bearded tsumugi) but the quantity of the threads is much lower than in hige-tsumugi. All these factors help to create a silk that has an amazing texture and unique look.

The fabric is an off-white creme color with a yellow undertone. It has a wonderful, subtle sheen. Please refer to the last photo for the most accurate representation of the color. Crayola brand crayons were placed in the photo for a color comparison.

Fabric specifics:

-Fabric is 34 inches (86.3 cm) in length and 11.5 inches (29.2 cm) wide.

-light to medium weight

-flowing drape with body

-slight sheen

-100% silk

-highly textured with large shibo (wrinkles) and tsumugi like slubbing

-Quite a bit of stretch when pulled with or across the grain, due to the shibo

Please note that the this fabric can be lightly ironed on the silk, steam setting. Place a cloth over the silk to prevent the iron surface from touching the silk. The silk can then be steamed to accentuate the shibo wrinkles.

I believe that the pictures show a good representation of the fabric colors however, please remember that colors may look different on your monitor. This is a vintage item so there may be small blemishes or marks although, I do not see any. This item has been stored for many years so there may be a slight storage smell although I do not notice any.
