Abaca Silk Fabric Long Width 90cm - Striped (Price for 0.5m)
This fabric/cloth is made with abaca fibers interwoven with silk threads, and is very finely and closely woven. Similar to Jinsin it can create wonderful curved/circular designs through flexing the fabric vertically, however Abaca Silk is much lighter and softer than Jinsin allowing for more movement and flexibility. It is often used in making hats and fascinators and can be dyed very easily using protein dyes. This variety features a striped pattern created by alternating between segments of silk and abaca threads. The fabric is approximately 39"/1 metre wide and is sold by the half a metre.
