Silk Fabrics

Silk is one of the finest yarns available to fabric producers and can be used for some of the most delicate and elegant fabrics or some rustic looks such as silk tweeds made with the shorter filaments. A jacquard weave gives interest and texture to a silk blousing. The fine floral or geometric patterns send an elegant message and can be used in dressy or day-wear garments. Silk crepe comes in a variety of weights… lighter weight for blouses, heaviest weight for suits. These fabrications cycle in and out of style, but are so classic that they generally find their way into designer groupings sometime during the fashion year. Silk twill can be crisp or softened. In either case the twill weave enhances drape, but the softer version will fall more gently for pants. Reserve the crisp for tops or trims. Click here for information on sewing and working with silk fabrics »
