60/2/3 Crepe-Spun Silk

October 25, 2009

many samples0002

I purchased this silk  from Robin and Russ  and used it as  Warp and Weft for these samples.  The take up in the natural portion of the sample is quite different to the black, due to the interlacement as both wefts were pre-shrunk.  It has a fairly rough feeling, but is very supple.   I have just enough left for a scarf and have never seen it for sale anywhere else.
