An 8 momme (32g per metre) Crepe de Chine silk fabric. Natural, undyed for silk painting, dyeing or printing. This lighter weight Crepe de Chine is woven with finer thread than the 14mm Crepe de Chine.
Crepe de Chine is woven from high-twist yarns (with a ‘Z’ twist on the warp and an ‘S’ twist on the weft) and degummed after weaving to give a flexible fabric with an excellent drape. The fabric takes colour well from Acid Dyes and silk paints, it is semi-translucent with a high sheen, and has excellent light reflection due to the weave structure. It is probably the most luxurious fabric for making wedding dresses and other special items of clothing.
This silk fabric is 90cm wide sold by the metre. Where more than one metre is ordered, the fabric will be supplied in one continuous length.
