Silk Chiffon 8mm 45" wide is now available in about thirty colors! Why? Because not every canvas has to be white.

An elegant, sheer fiber with a soft beautiful drape and a crepe like texture. Takes dyes exceptionally well reflecting strong, deep colors. Very easy to dye and paint and responds well to all painting styles and techniques. Fiber is ideal for floaty scarves, shawls and wispy gowns. Like a feather floating on the wind. The essence of silk. Paint, dye, enjoy!

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 cool to lukewarm 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.

It's a nice fabric but I didn't like much how it turned out with nuno felting. Much preferred regular silk.

Light floaty perfect. I'm using it for puffed trim on a silk Victorian ballgown.
