This is a fantastic blend. The silk lends a beautiful lustrous shine to one side, while the hemp lends strength and body. Like silk charmeuse, there is one shiny side and one matte side. Both sides show the slubbiness of hemp fabric, giving a nice texture as well as an interesting look. Definitely a must see..

Also can be fun to dye with Dharma Fiber Reactive Dyes, as mixes like purples, greens, browns, etc., that contain blue (which often strikes lighter on silk) can dye the silk threads of the fabric a different color than the hemp threads, which, combined with the sheen, can produce a wonderful look! Fun to play with!

I ordered this fabric to make my daughter's wedding dress. It sews like a dream! It does ravel quite a bit so make sure to finish all edges.

This fabric totally rocks! It is my "go to" fabric for pretty much everything - dying quilting painting - th list is endless. It is gorgeous. I am not gentle with fabrics and this one stands up to everything.

I absolutely loved working with this fabric! I made a fairly complicated wedding gown and it turned out great. It was so much easier to work with than dupioni because it didn't fray as much. I can't wait to work with it again!

Interesting. Not quite what I expected it is very substantial. After I dye it I will make a jacket. I am sure it will be lovely because of the sheen of the charmeuse.

Really beautiful shimmer. Even more than most silks. Better drape along the cross grain so plan accordingly. The texture is lovely. I'm using this for the draped bodice of a wedding gown.
