Cool toned dark forest green cross woven silk dupioni. Cross weaving means the warp and weft are different colors, here, green and black, which gives the fabric more depth and richness. Smooth, muted sheen with a light slub texture with a soft hand and drape. Light weight, you can dress it up or down, make a dress, shirt, skirt, vest, duster coat, sculptural airy pants.

Dry clean or hand launder and air dry. I sometimes toss silk dupioni in the washer/dryer, which makes it a bit more cotton-y, this kicks back the silky shine and creates lovely all-over crinkles. I take it out of the dryer when it is just a bit damp, smooth it out, give a light press. You can then sew and press as usual, and it will retain the soft crinkles. Test a swatch first to be sure you like the results.
After sewing, hand launder or machine wash gentle, while damp, pull out and smooth the edges - I would not put it in the dryer again once the garment is sewn.
