Description

Silk Dupion Cream

Silk Dupion (sometimes the spelling is ‘douppioni’ or ‘dupioni’), is a lustrous silk, which is often woven from two different colours of threads, to give it a shot appearance. Silk Dupion is usually brightly coloured, with a crisp finish it can also be reversed. It is not particularly stretchy, and is relatively easy to sew with or onto. When using for goldwork a backing fabric is needed, either a Poly Cotton or Calico

    This silk is lovely quality, and a joy to stitch on. The colour is a very pale whitish-cream with a nice sheen. It has a crisp and even texture and a close weave, it’s well-behaved and not too slubby! One extra bonus is that it’s translucent enough that you can use it like tracing paper on a lightbox or computer screen, to trace your design onto it very quickly and easily. (That may not be the case with darker colours, but it certainly works with the cream silk.) I’m sure I will use more of this in future, it’s lovely.
