Blue crosshatch silk twill GONE


I admit I am really drawn to crosshatch prints (and there is another crosshatch type fabric I am also posting with this lot), especially if there is something a little bit different about them, as with this print where the crosshatch has become all swirling.


Silk twills are brilliant to sew.  Even if you are normally a bit reluctant to tackle silk, the twill behaves like a soft cotton during handling.  There is no reason to have any hesitation about taking them on.  And I’ve mentioned it before, but I wash nearly all my silks.  I will test a swatch first to see how the wash changes the fabric.  Sometimes there will be a bit of shrinkage, or a slight change in surface texture, but I nearly always prefer the after wash fabric.  So, sewing and keeping silks laundered…it is really easy…


This one is a regular twill…lightweight but not the lightest weight one that is around — it’s a great weight — and it is completely opaque.  It is beautifully soft and smooth to touch.  And the colour is a simple off-white and cadet blue combination.  It’ll work for tons of garments, dresses, tops, skirts…


The fabric width is 143cm and the length is 2 metres.  The price of the fabric is $25 a metre/$50 for the piece.

I can post this in the smallest satchel (with tracking) at $8.25.  Please see here for full details on payment and posting.  If interested, please click on the email below; fabric details will appear automatically and I will get back to you asap. (Australia delivery only thanks).
