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. "
