Machine hemmed 8mm Chiffon scarves! Just like our hand rolled and stitched Chiffon scarves except the hems are machined, flat, smooth even and look great after dyeing.
Chiffon is an elegant, sheer and more loosely woven silk with a soft beautiful drape and a crepe like texture. The scarves float like a feather on a summer breeze! These are probably the most popular fabric next to Habotai to make scarves from. Economical as well as beautiful! Very easy to dye and paint and responds well to all painting styles and techniques.
We recommend, especially if you are re-selling, to pre-wash in Hot water and Synthrapol or our Professional Textile Detergent, all silk before dyeing or painting to remove any leftover residue from the silk worms (Seracin) or finger prints and other stuff that can cause the fabric to dye unevenly. Our product Milsoft is excellent for restoring the soft hand to silk after dyeing.
NOTE: Chiffon shrinks a lot because of loose weave, much more in length- drying scarves while stretched helps reduce shrinkage
