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.
