Silk is a classic fabric that can be used in many different ways and this is a beauty. The lightweight twill weave is opaque, with a soft smooth hand, matte finish and beautiful drape. Dress it up or down; great for a shirt, skirt, vest, dress, soft palazzo pant or tunic. Silk is an ideal year round fabric because it is a natural insulator, warm when layered, cool and airy in warmer weather.
Silk is washable. If you want to maintain the original sheen and texture, hand launder and air dry or dry clean. If you want a more textured crinkled look, toss in the washer and dryer -- and always test a sample piece first.
