Product Description
The "Mercedes" of the silks, Crepe de Chine is heavier and more substantial than the Habotai, with a soft, more luxurious texture. The crepe finish adds a bit of interest and has a more subtle sheen. These are very popular with folks who are looking to dye or paint something nicer, but still very affordable. These have hand rolled hems with 100% silk thread. Ready to dye and paint!

We also have a few sizes in black, by popular demand. They look great when used with some of our more opaque or metallic fabric paints or the foils. Some folks use them with discharge techniques. Just keep in mind that there is never a guarantee that a black will always discharge, because especially with imported stuff, the dye they are using can change. Also, the color you get when you discharge can vary widely, from a light tan to a dark rust brown. Always best to test if you want to discharge a black garment or fabric.

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.

Made in: CHINA (CN)

The 11x60 sizes come significantly narrower at about 9 34" to 10 14" - which is not the 11" wide scarves I expect to get. After the painting and steaming they become even smaller and shorter.... I feel really disappointed! The same refers to the Flat Crepe - big fluctuation in the width.Apart from the size issue the CDC scarves sometimes have some defects in the very material - like knots or threads pulled out of the fabric of the scarves.Third problem: the CDC scarves have the worse quality of hand-rolled hems! Almost each scarf needs re-sewing here and there on the hem.Can you please try to take care of these issues? This is such a wonderful fabric rich and luscious and it is a really pity when an artist has to compromise that much. The Crepe de Chine deserves better.

This is a good medium weight silk scarf. I like the texture. This weave does not have the same sheen found on a smoother weave but it is nice to wear. I think this is my favorite cool weather silk scarf.

This is a beautiful silk - the weight is very luxurious and the feel is very classy. Well made and dyes beautifully.

Have used two of these scarves for a dyeing project and was satisfied both with the quality of the fabric and the finished dyed scarf. Used turmeric on one of them and the resulting color is magnificent.
