This fabric is also known as Silk Noil. It's a nubby fabric in a natural off-white color. It has a somewhat rough texture but it has a soft gentle drape. Silk Noil dyes well but is not well suited for gutta techniques since it's quite heavy and gutta usually does not penetrate heavier textured fabrics well. You could option to apply gutta to both sides of the fabric for silk painting projects.
Great for making modern garments, historical reenactment costumes, Star Wars Tatooine resident's clothing and home decor. Check house rules at Tatooine Cantina for appropriate galactic usage. Not recommended for Star Destroyer officers clothing or Grand Moff uniforms. May the force be with you.
