If the 12mm CREPE DE CHINE scarves are the "Mercedes", here are the "Rolls Royces" of the scarf world! These are heavier also - 16.5 mm. By stone (sand) washing this heavier weight of Crepe de Chine, one gets a matte silk with a very soft, luxurious drape and a buttery suede feel. You won't want to ever remove them from your neck! This is the one that is perfect for the more sophisticated man or woman in your life. Artists, you can make a wonderful high end product by putting your artwork on these! These have hand rolled hems with 100% silk thread. Ready to dye and paint!
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.
