Description: [show]

Many people claim black silk is the most sophisticated fabric available, and this is a splendid example of the genre. Hemp's durability combines with silk's shine and classic feel to create a fabric that you'll reach for again and again. Shiny on one side and muted on the other, it's perfect for making that "little black dress" and other formal items, luxurious everyday wear (harem pants, anyone?), and fancy crafts (eye pillows, sachets, etc). You'll love the feel and how sumptuously it drapes. Also available in natural, autumn, and sand. Some people make the most opulent duvet covers and curtains imaginable with these hemp silk charmeuses, and you could too!

It's hard to show how shiny this fabric is and how wonderfully it drapes in a small picture, so we've included a larger view of the three colors as well.

Made from tussah silk and naturally-grown hemp raised as a companion crop in the fields of China without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers. The vast, vast majority of the silkworms are allowed to work their way free of the cocoon and continue their lives; the few that don't end up as highly-prized delicacies for the fiber workers. Farm and mill workers are paid a fair wage for their work, receive benefits, and have a significant amount of say about their jobs. Purchase this fabric knowing you are making a difference!

At 7.4 ounces per linear yard, this fabric weighs about 4.8 ounces per square yard.
