Machine hemmed 12mm Crepe de Chine scarves. The hems are machined with 100% silk thread, rather than hand rolled and stitched. This produces a more consistent, flat hem that is less inclined to pucker when dyed.
Crepe de Chine is heavier and more substantial than Habotai, with a soft, more luxurious texture. The crepe finish adds a bit of interest and has a more subtle sheen. Ideal if you are looking to dye or paint something nicer, but still very affordable. Ready to dye and paint!
It is recommended to pre-wash in hot water with Synthrapol, all silk before dyeing or painting to remove any leftover residue from the silk worms (Seracin) or finger prints and any other residue that can cause the fabric to dye unevenly.
Price is for one scarf. Measures approximately 8" x 54".
