Product Description

Silk Chiffon 8mm 45" wide is now available in about thirty colors! Why? Because not every canvas has to be white.

An elegant, sheer fiber with a soft beautiful drape and a crepe like texture. Takes dyes exceptionally well reflecting strong, deep colors. Very easy to dye and paint and responds well to all painting styles and techniques. Fiber is ideal for floaty scarves, shawls and wispy gowns. Like a feather floating on the wind. The essence of silk. Paint, discharge, enjoy!

ALSO: Colored swatches vary from monitor to monitor and may not exactly match actual fabric. There may be slight variations in fabrics from dyelot to dyelot. This is normal. Samples are available. These fabrics are dyed with Acid Dyes, and should be washed in cool to lukewarm water or dry cleaned.

Discharging: Several folks have been asking if the new colors or black discharge. Since the colors are new, we haven't tested them yet, but we will be, with Discharge Paste and with DeColourant. But what we can immediately say on the subject, which any discharge artist should know, is that all colors are going to vary, from discharging to almost white, to nothing, and some will simply lighten, while others will change color. Your results will also depend on the discharging chemical you use. All of them are safe on silk EXCEPT BLEACH. So when results need to be a certain way, you MUST TEST! Discharging can often be unpredictable. We will publish a list of our results in a few weeks.

I even figured out a way to hem this chiffon on the machine. Sold seven hemmed pieces to a bride for her bridesmaids.

Used this fabric to make Nuno felted scarves. It worked great. It is a good weight and weave for Nuno felting.

This silk is beautiful and perfect for nuno felting. I have been unable to source good silk in New Zealand so it is great to know I can get what I need relatively quickly via the internet.
