Similar to Chiffon but an even lighter weight. An extremely sheer and delicate fiber with a very soft hand and floaty drape. Dyes and paints easily with great color retention. Very popular backing for Nuno Felting. Good for felted scarves, layered over heavier fabrics, ethereal set decoration, Halloween effects and more.
Because of its delicate nature, silk gauzes should be handled more carefully.

- Available in cut yardage and in 53 yard bolts in the 55" & 45" (both black and white) and 55 yard bolts in the 36"
- Wash in any temperature water - while silk gauze can be machine washed, you will get maximum shrink that way. Because of the delicacy of a thin gauze like this, hand washing is probably preferable.
Remember, bolts vary! They can be over or under - we charge you for the actual yardage. If you need very specific yardage, order cut yardage.
