This silk comes to you all the way from Margilan – the silk capital of Central Asia. Margilan is an ancient city in Uzbekistan, and for centuries was an important trading hub due to its convenient locations and abundance of sought-after goods, silk being a major one. To this day, Margilan silk is made exclusively by hand with the help of ancient secrets and techniques.
If compare margelan silk to Chinese silk, it is far more open to felt fibers into it and the results are more luster and beautiful. it is very light weight. It takes beautiful any dyes. This silk does not have any seams – the edges are unprocessed.
width is 34" . This listing for 3 yards.
This is what my customer says: "I am so excited to get a source for this amazing silk. It dyes beautifully and I am excited to use it in my feltmaking. The luster is AMAZING! And I love the open, gauze weave structure made with the yarns larger than most gauze. I know this will show up beautifully when I felt it in. Most gauzes just "melt" into the wool background losing their definition, but this will keep it's luster and look wonderful. "
When ordering a product keep in mind that the actual colors might differ from what you see, due to the settings of the monitor.
