Chiffon is an elegant, sheer, and more loosely woven silk with a soft beautiful drape and a crepe-like texture. This is why these scarves work so well for the nuno felting technique. 100% silk, 8mm. Flat machine-stitched hems. Made in China.
Also very easy to dye and paint and responds well to all painting styles and techniques. It is recommended that if you dye these scarves, especially if you are re-selling, to pre-wash in hot water and Synthrapol to remove any leftover residue from the silk worms (Seracin) or finger prints that can cause the fabric to dye unevenly.
NOTE: Chiffon “shrinks” a lot when used in felting, because of the loose weave, and much more in length than width – so keep in mind that your finished scarf dimensions will be less than stated.
