Dharma has the best prices on blank silk scarves for dyeing!

As always, we import only First Class, Grade A silk and we still offer it at the lowest prices in the USA! Even as China revalues its currency, workers gain salary increases and shipping costs rise, we continue to price our silks as low as possible so you all can still afford them.

There are some things you should know about our silk scarves. All silk scarves are not created equal. We can find cheaper scarves but there are just too many problems with them. We offer only the best quality we can get in order to have few problems and happy customers.

All of our scarves are #1 quality "firsts" - grown, woven and sewn in mainland China. The hems on all four sides are hand-rolled and sewn with 100% silk thread. (Because they are hand rolled, measurements can vary, which is normal in this industry.) Although the silks are untreated and are ostensibly "ready-to-dye", we have found that with silk in general, occasionally small amounts of silk gum (the stuff left by the moths) is still in the fabric. Where there is gum, or even fingerprints, the fabric will dye lighter. Look for shiny areas in your silk - if there are any you should wash it before dyeing or wash all silk if you want to be really safe.

We recommend Synthrapol or our Professional Textile Detergent for pre-washing because it's really good at taking silk gum out of the silk. Hot water works best!

There are also few things you should know about our fabrics in general...
