The texture of raw silk or silk noil is nubbly and feels a bit rough to touch as it has tiny kinks on its natural off-white surface. Don’t let this one go by without giving it much credit. It is machine washable and drapes well after a few wash.
It prints and react beautifully with a variety of natural plants that I’ve used, to name a few: eucalyptus, rose, maple, and oak leaves. I love the feel and the rustic appeal of this fabric. It is a wonderful media for dyeing and for someone who is new to eco printing.
