Eucalyptus Rayon Challis WovenMarcy Tilton Fabrics
Beautiful spin on a botanical print, blue toned eucalyptus leaves dashed with pink on a black background in an uber drapey rayon/viscose challis. Light weight, opaque,(no lingerie show through), with a smooth cool dry hand, airy fluid drape and minimal wrinkling, the weight is right for a top, blouse, tunic, dress or skirt. Textile trivia: the word challis (say shal-ee) comes from a Native American word for 'soft', the word that the native people used when the French traders showed them soft wool/linen broadcloth, and now is used to describe soft and drapey rayons and wools. The touch of nylon (always a sign of upper end fabrics), adds smoothness and reduces wrinkling. One way design, 30" repeat.
Hand launder and air dry.
85% viscose/15% nylon
