Heavy weight crepe-de-chine at 128gms per sq. metre is one of the heaviest pure silk fabrics that we stock. It has more of a matt finish than the medium weight crepe but is ideal for making skirts and tops. Like the medium weight crepe, it is a joy to cut and sew.
We recommend that you hand wash your fabric, scarf or finished garment in tepid water and a mild detergent. Once rinsed, gently squeeze out the excess water (do not wring when wet) and lay flat between towels until you are ready to iron. Iron damp on the reverse with a fairly hot iron.
We do recommend all fabric be washed separately before use, this will allow any excess dye to be removed and shrinkage to occur before cutting.
Store silk in a dry/dark wardrobe. Do not store silk fabric/clothing in plastic.
Please allow us 2-3 working days to dye your cloth and up to 5-6 working days for printed fabric. For further information on how long this will take please contact us at email@example.com or 01386 881507. Thank you
