I would just like to say that whatever magic you put in the 60%hemp 40%silk fabric.. keep doing it! I was in a pinch and had to dye fabric and make a garment in under a week... and it worked! BEAUTIFULLY! I used procion dyes that I already had and the color was smooth and even and gorgeous and luscious. I love the fabric because it needs no backing the hemp sort of serves as a self backing because it is so strong. Absolutely perfect.

This is beautiful fabric! I have tried the same blend of fabrics (60 hemp40 silk) from 2 other companies and this one is superior in quality. Nice depth of color when dyed with MX dyes.

Something they don't mention about this fabric is that besides being very comfortable it's extremely durable and long-wearing. I made pillowcases from it 6 years ago and have used them almost every day since then and the fabric still looks like it did the day I sewed them. And that's saying a lot as I'm a guy and have found that beard stubble tears up cheap pillowcases pretty quickly...

This fabric dyes beautifully with reactive dyes and has a wonderful interesting texture and slightly stiff body even after washed.

I bought a bolt of this fabric many years ago and I have a bit left I was checking to see if Dharma still carried it. It looks much better than the pic. Primarily I slipcovered my couch with it and it was very luxurious. I now have a new couch but I miss the fabric! I have made a number of other things with it and they all look great. I think I am capable of dying it so am thinking of making some drapes. You will love this fabric.
