Product Description

Now available in about thirty NEW colors! Why? Because not every canvas has to be white.

Lightweight crepe back silk Satin, or Charmeuse, is simply a slightly lighter weight version of our 19.5 momme charmeuse fabrics. Being the 'Rolls Royce' of silks, it has stunning sheen on one side (the shiniest of all silks!) and a slightly textured back. The drape is spectacular and it feels luxurious as it runs across your hand.

ALSO: Colored swatches vary from monitor to monitor and may not exactly match actual fabric. There may be slight variations in fabrics from dyelot to dyelot. This is normal. Samples are available. These fabrics are dyed with Acid Dyes, and should be washed in cold water or dry cleaned. Dyed fabrics can bleed! Pre-washing or treating the fabric with something like our Dharma Dye Fixative is a good idea if you want to ensure that there is no dye bleed. 

Discharging: Several folks have been asking if the new colors discharge. Since they are new, we haven't tested them yet, but we will be, with Discharge Paste and with DeColourant. But what we can immediately say on the subject, which any discharge artist should know, is that all colors are going to vary, from discharging to almost white, to nothing, and some will simply lighten, while others will change color. Your results will also depend on the discharging chemical you use. All of them are safe on silk EXCEPT BLEACH. So when results need to be a certain way, you MUST TEST! Discharging can often be unpredictable. We will publish a list of our results in a few weeks.

Thank you Dharma for adding Silk fabric to your inventory. I purchased the Charmeuse in navy burgundy and black and I am thrilled with the quality of the silk and the colors are true. I haven't decided if I should pre-wash the fabric or pre-dry clean it but I am leaning toward washing it. I purchased the fabric to line dresses and to line a "Chanel" jacket I plan on sewing so the fabric will be dry cleaned once I make the garments. Thank you for this fabulous fabric.

Just recently ordered this to complete a design for a competition. The fabric is better than I expected and lightweight as it describes. It took to the Ori-Nui Shibori dyeing I did to it exceptionally. I'm also incorporating a lining as the material is light and slightly see through. Really happy with my purchase!
