Silk Shantung, White,  54 inches wide, 100% silk. A beautiful fabric for a wedding gown. Shantung has a small amount of slubs within the fabric weave.  Silk shantung has some body in it which helps a skirt on a wedding gown keep its’ shape/form. Shantung is a good fabric to use when making a jacket.

Silk shantung is a natural fiber.  It has a small amount of texture created from uneven horizontal ribs from slubs in the weave of the fabric.  A slub is a lump or a thick nub in the fabric (a slightly twisted roll of fiber) for a desired textured look.

It is recommended to have silk dry cleaned when it is needed to be cleaned.

There is 1  1/2 yards of this fabric. Cannot reorder more yardage.
