Extremely high quality with an excellent look and feel. Silk dupioni with slubs 57 inches width, heavyweight wild silk with crisp texture and beautiful sheen. Dupioni silk has an irregular weave with tiny nubs showing. It is sometimes confused with 'shantung' or 'raw silk' which is usually lighter in weight and has a finer weave than dupioni. Dupioni is used extensively by many of the top bridal designers and manufacturers. Please be aware that silk is a natural product and as such will always have a small amount of natural flaws, therefore, particularly for dressmaking, it is always advisable to order a little bit more fabric than you may need.
