This silk fabric has a soft, lustrous and supple hand. Perfect for beginners as it is economical, has a smooth surface and lends itself to most painting techniques. Good for fairly sheer scarves, pillows, linings, very light weight flags and more.

I bought this to use for nuno felted scarves. It has more luster than the 8mm chiffon I had been using shrinks less in my dye bath and during felting and is less expensive. I am a convert!

I have been using this silk habotai fabric for nuno felting.It has worked well and most importantly it has taken the dyes beautifully. This has been my first attempt at nuno felting a scarf and I found it very rewarding. Thank you Dharma for providing quality products for my work.

About Tiered Discount Levels

You can combine cotton and rayon clothing & accessories to get the greatest discounts. Your discount is figured on the total number of cotton and rayon items we ship, not how many of each type, style or size. Mix and match them to get the best discount.

Example: adding 4 each of 3 different T-shirts in any sizes will give you the 12+ price on all 12 shirts.

Some products may be excluded from discounts, and / or may discount only with themselves. If you have any questions at all please contact us toll free at 800-542-5227 (no buttons, just humans).
