Heavy Habotai Silk Yard, 10mm weight

  • Heavy Habotai Silk Yard, 10mm weight

Description

Our heaviest and most solid silk. Very durable and can be used for play as well as curtains and clothing. This is wonderful for Eurythmy gowns. Can tolerate repeated washings.

Per yard: 44 inches wide

Shrinkage: Allow up to 3% in length and 1% in width

 

What mm stands for: 100% silk fabric is measured by a weight referred to as mm or momme (pronounce mummy). 8mm = 1 ounce and 1 ounce = 28 grams. The smaller the mm the lighter the fabric. 1mm = 3.5 grams.

Pre-washing notes from our supplier: "Although the silks are untreated and are ostensibly "ready-to-dye", we have found that with silk in general, occasionally small amounts of silk gum (the stuff left by the moths) is still in the fabric. Where there is gum, or even fingerprints, the fabric will dye lighter. Look for shiny areas in your silk - if there are any you should wash it before dyeing or wash all silk if you want to be really safe. We recommend Synthrapol for pre-washing because it's really good at taking silk gum out of the silk. Hot water works best!"
