Lightweight crepe back silk Satin, or Charmeuse, is simply a slightly lighter weight version of our 19.5 momme charmeuse fabrics. Being the 'Rolls Royce' of silks, it has stunning sheen on one side (the shiniest of all silks!) and a slightly textured back. The drape is spectacular and it feels luxurious as it runs across your hand.

Please note: color number 50 Natural White is the original white silk we have always been selling, the exact same fabric as #CBSSL Lightweight Crepe Back Silk Satin, just being sold here on this page under an alias. It's like a deep cover agent posing as a 'colored' fabric when it's not. The NEW "Optic White" color is the whitest of whites, whitened with optic whitener for the glowing brides out there, and yes, as an added bonus, it does glow under black-light too!

ALSO: Colored swatches vary from monitor to monitor and may not exactly match actual fabric. There may be slight variations in fabrics from dyelot to dyelot. This is normal. Samples are available. These fabrics are dyed with Acid Dyes, and should be washed in cold water or dry cleaned.

Discharging: Several folks have been asking if the new colors discharge. Since they are new, we haven't tested them yet, but we will be, with Discharge Paste and with DeColourant. But what we can immediately say on the subject, which any discharge artist should know, is that all colors are going to vary, from discharging to almost white, to nothing, and some will simply lighten, while others will change color. Your results will also depend on the discharging chemical you use. All of them are safe on silk EXCEPT BLEACH. So when results need to be a certain way, you MUST TEST! Discharging can often be unpredictable. We will publish a list of our results in a few weeks.

The fabric is beautiful rich color black ever so slightly sheer if put against the light. I assume it is slightly heavier than China silk that they sell and it is a not see through. I'm using it to line a winter wool dress I'm working on right now. So I started working with this fabric and it cuts ( with tissue paper under it) and sews very nicely. Super fast shipping too.

Oh wow! This fabric arrive neatly folded and cut on thread-straight grain. It washed beautifully and is a dream to work with. The fabric drape is almost liquid and the sheen is lustrous.

I love this 12mm charmeuse! It's exactly what I wanted as far as the weight and the silkiness. I use it to make scarves and hair bonnets--it's perfect. I also love that shipping was very quick. I will be ordering more! Thank you!
