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.

Also available in BLACKlighter weight and a smooth version

Awesome for natural dyes. I wash it in the hottest possible water with a pH neutral detergent to open up the fibers and remove the natural oils. It accepts dyes much more easily after this pre-washing.

Wonderful raw silk. I use this for proper paintings whereas I use the Habotai for scarves & clothing. The results mimic some of the effects that you get when using oils on linen which I love but the application works more like watercolors - making this a very unique surface to paint on - love it!

I love this fabric! It dyes beautifully has a wonderful hand and texture. Perfect for quilting just bought 10 yards.

This stuff is a dream! Soft breathable dyes up beautifully -- plus if it wrinkles all you have to do is hang it in the bathroom while you shower and the wrinkles steam right out. I've used it for Ren Faire and other costuming projects and it holds up quite well. The fabric does shed a little when washed the first few times however as bits of the nubby surface come off.

Really good price nice to sew on feels to be of nice quality. The only thing is it has an odd smell which I have noticed in pretty much all raw silk no matter where I get it. It does dissipate after washing though.
