Now available in 19 colors! 19 mm (momme) Crepe Back Silk Satin, or Charmeuse, is simply a heavier and even more luxurious version of our 12 momme charmeuse fabrics. Great for dresses! A two sided fabric that can be used with either the crepe or satin side facing. It has a firm, soft, supple hand and a luxuriously heavy drape. 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. 

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. Dyed fabrics can bleed! Pre-washing or treating the fabric with something like our Dharma Dye Fixative is a good idea if you want to ensure that there is no dye bleed. 

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.

A beautiful result on a delicious fabric: I dyed a yard of this silk with procion dyes and in the same pot at the same time dyed an old silk shirt using the stove top Dharma instructions. This satin silk came out much richer and deeper in color than the silk shirt but both so beautiful.

I love this silk. I preshrink in the washer and dryer. It dulls the shine and creates a softer presentation. The Dharma acid dye takes in deep tones that make my hand made quilts look even richer. I make Palazzo pants formal dresses quilts and night gowns from this wonderfully draping fabric

I ordered this as the lining for my wedding gown. I have to say it's worth every penny. I felt like a queen in my all-silk ensemble. My dressmaker loved working with it too! If I can figure out how to post a picture of it on here I will.
