Product Description
Similar to Chiffon but an even lighter weight. An extremely sheer and delicate fiber with a very soft hand and floaty drape. Dyes and paints easily with great color retention. Good for very light scarves, floaty veils and shawls and multiple layered clothing. Very popular backing for Nuno Felting.
Because of its ethereal nature, silk gauzes should be handled more carefully.
Fabric Details
  • 100% Gauze Silk
  • 3mm, 36" and 45" wide
  • You can dye the white gauze with Acid Dyes
  • You can discharge the black version of this fabric. Keep in mind discharge results do vary, and sometimes fabric will hardly discharge at all, so testing is very important. If one product won't work, sometimes another will. Discharge Instructions
  • We found that this shrinks 14% in Length and 8% in Width disclaimer
  • Available in cut yardage and in 55 yard bolts
  • Wash in any temperature water - while silk gauze can be machine washed, you will get maximum shrink that way. Because of the delicacy of a thin gauze like this, hand washing is probably preferable.

Remember, bolts vary! They can be over or under - we charge you for the actual yardage. If you need very specific yardage, order cut yardage.

Please note that the current stock of SG45 is running 40-42".

I ordered three yards of the silk gauze to use as a wedding veil and I couldn't be more pleased with it! I love how wispy and filmy it is and it has a beautiful texture. I think "dreamy" would be a good word to describe it. Another bonus is that any little snags I got in the fabric smoothed out beautifully.

This is the first time that this 3mm silk gauze is of the high quality I need for nuno felting. I cannot always rely on the quality of this weight silk when ordering online in 2010 and 2011 because it needs to hold up to the rigors of nuno felting. I am extremely happy with this order.

This is probably the lightest prettiest fabric I've ever worked with. It gathers beautifully and floats like a dream. At this price it's worth buying a few yards just to play around with.
