Clearance Disclaimer

Unfortunately, this fabric was discounted from the manufacture. Cut yardage and full bolts available all for one low price per yard.

Somewhat similar to a Crepe Back Silk Satin, this beautiful fabric has a shiny side and a matte side. A Lustrous silky hand, weight similar to a 19mm silk, but with more than half cotton content. This one should be a fun one to dye because of the fiber blend. Experiment with dyeing it with Procion colors with blue content, like greens, purples, browns, etc. as the cotton and silk will be different colors, which can give it some real character. Alter Ego dye could do some really interesting colors on this fabric as well!

As is typical with fabrics of a satin weave from different types of fibers after washing and dying there is a very faint fuzz that appears on the surface of this material. If you dye this with acid dyes (which colours the silk but not so much the cotton) the light fuzzing on the surface is noticeable. If you dye with procion dyes (which gets the cotton but not so much the silk) the fuzzing is nearly impossible to see. I ended up doing both - pass through the acid dyes and then a pass through a procion dye to get a professional looking finish. This fabric really holds creases so take extra care with stretching it out to dry after prewashing or dying. Shibori techniques will leave permanent creases but it ends up adding a layer of texture to the design so that's probably ok in most cases.

Has a lovely shimmer and so much easier to piece with (in quilts) than 100% silk.

This is a fun fabric to work with. Unlike many shiny fabrics it will not slip against itself but rather stick much like a pure cotton. It is a bit sheer requiring my dress to be double-layered.

Love this fabric. It's so soft and luxurious. I intended to use it to make embroidered pillow cases as a wedding present for a friend but it's almost too nice. It stays soft and beautiful even after washing.
