Product Description

This fabric is also known as Silk Noil. It's a nubby fabric in a natural off-white color. The fabric has random tan flecks throughout the weave. It has a somewhat rough texture but it has a soft gentle drape. Silk Noil dyes well but is not well suited for gutta techniques since it's quite heavy and gutta usually does not penetrate heavier textured fabrics well. You could option to apply gutta to both sides of the fabric for silk painting projects.

Great for making modern garments, historical reenactment costumes, Star Wars Tatooine resident's clothing and home decor. Check house rules at Tatooine Cantina for appropriate galactic usage. Not recommended for Star Destroyer officers clothing or Grand Moff uniforms. May the force be with you.

Also available in BLACK

Wonderful raw silk. I use this for proper paintings whereas I use the Habotai for scarves & clothing. The results mimic some of the effects that you get when using oils on linen which I love but the application works more like watercolors - making this a very unique surface to paint on - love it!

This stuff is a dream! Soft breathable dyes up beautifully -- plus if it wrinkles all you have to do is hang it in the bathroom while you shower and the wrinkles steam right out. I've used it for Ren Faire and other costuming projects and it holds up quite well. The fabric does shed a little when washed the first few times however as bits of the nubby surface come off.

Really good price nice to sew on feels to be of nice quality. The only thing is it has an odd smell which I have noticed in pretty much all raw silk no matter where I get it. It does dissipate after washing though.

I bought it to experiment on. It has a distinct oily scent I am guessing from the silk worms. Some people believe the oilscent is actually good for you. It is a little rough unwashed. It seems to insulate quite well. I am probably going to use it as a blanket but I would buy more to make tunics and cloaks.

Would that life was raw silk every day! After a cold water wash as with all raw silk it has its little quirks but I was expecting this. Fine quality.

This was just what I wanted - for a light weight travel blanket - it folds up to a small size but keeps me warm enough. The width is good and 2 yards is just right. It also arrived in a timely manner

I love the texture and hand of this fabric (after I wash it a couple of times -- in Synthrapol). I just wish it was a little heavier.

Just received the raw silk in the natural and in the black. It is perfection. I am making a sun dress using both colors. It will be very classy but very cool and comfy. I will be buying more of the natural in the future to dye and make into breezy skirts.
