We found this lovely 63% silk/37% wool blend fabric and we are having it made into hand hemmed scarves sewn with silk thread. 12.5mm makes it about the same weight as the 12mm Crepe de Chine and, with its diagonal weave, it drapes great as well! These can be dyed or painted with any product made for silk, like our Acid dyes below. They are warmer for winter than just plain silk, and quite soft for those who are normally irritated by itchy wool. A lot of men are wearing scarves now too, and the 11x60 or 14x72 sizes are perfect for them. With a bit looser weave and a wool blend like this, we recommend hand washing and line drying to cut down on shrinkage.
