Silk Bits

 

Sari Silk Fabric Stacks
Pre-loved fabric from old saris. Sari silk can be shredded and turned into silk saree ribbon or spun into yarn. Can also be used for rag rugs, weaving rugs, jewellry, upcycled clothes, quilting and embroidery. Fabulous for nuno-felting.

The designs on this recycled fabric are all varied and also unrepeatable so each bag is a treat. The photos show typical packs but as none are the same, the fabric pack you choose will not be identical. That's what makes it exciting.

The fabrics, being recycled, may be fragile in places and possibly have holes and tears.

Each stack contains ten pieces, each approximately 50cm x 50cm.

Fabric stack of ten: $20.00 ($18.18)

 

 

Margilan Silk Gauze
A delicate and almost transparent silk gauze/fine mesh handdyed. It will add a new dimension to your nuno felting and textile art work.

It is an open-weave silk gauze with the look of a fine, lightweight cheesecloth, but with the wonderful lustre of a habotai silk. Perfect for nuno felting in many applications but also a beautiful transparent fabric for using in the silk paper process.

It can be used as a method of trapping surface design elements that might otherwise not attach themselves to the base fibres. Due to its delicate weave, this weight comes with some inherent flaws that occur during the weaving process, but these usually disappear into the felt once it is fulled. It is subject to snagging, so handle with care.

Try laying it on Romeo water soluble fabric and add a few extra treat such as velvet shapes or fine merino or our exclusive wool/silk mix "Slushie" to create work which is light weight and drapey. It does not pucker or "rouche" a great deal, but you can clump and cluster it for gorgeous surface design effects in your nuno felts. Piece width is approx 90cm.
