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.

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 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.

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.
