I bought this to use for nuno felted scarves. It has more luster than the 8mm chiffon I had been using shrinks less in my dye bath and during felting and is less expensive. I am a convert!

I really have no basis of comparison as this is my first silk purchase. The price was excellent and the material is going to suit my needs very well. Can't speak to dying it as I'm just using it for lining purposes. Will definitely be buying from this company again.

Good quality silk. I wish you carried 6 mm silk!! I like your silk habotai better than Exotic silk's but they are the only source I can find that carries 6 mm habotai which is the most preferred weight for belly dance veils.

I have been using this silk habotai fabric for nuno felting.It has worked well and most importantly it has taken the dyes beautifully. This has been my first attempt at nuno felting a scarf and I found it very rewarding. Thank you Dharma for providing quality products for my work.
