Tussah Silk & Silk Boucle

November 6, 2009

This sample is woven with a tussah silk noil blend from Silk Tree and cultivated silk boucle from Treenway Silks.  I space dyed the boucle and  it shrank  alot so would recommend washing it before using it in a mixed warp if you don’t want a differential shrinkage effect.   This is sett and woven at 20 epi/ppi.  I no longer have the book, but think this draft was from a sample book by Dini Moes.

    Ooo, I love those fabrics! And it’s really great to see the drafts for them, too.

    Lovely fabric and the space dying certainly gives it a unique character. In fact all the fabrics in silk you’ve shown are wonderful. It’s not a fiber I’ve worked much with but I have some in my stash that has been marinating in ideas for a little while.
