Tempest | Silk Mesh

Silk Mesh Fabric

Treetops has developed our own unique lightweight, open-weave silk fabric. After years of searching and failing to find our dream fabric, we decided to weave it ourselves!

Lustrous, transparent, open weave, lightweight and textural – qualities we were looking for and have had specially woven into our cloth.

Tips for working with open weave fabrics: In open weave fabrics there is less structure, so if you are nuno felting your cloth will have a more lustrous surface than a highly textural one. Your cloth will also have excellent drape because of the mesh’s open weave structure. There is a fantastic see through element to the mesh. Open weave fabrics tend to have more shift in the fabric’s structure and so will be a bit more fragile than more tightly woven fabrics. To cut a straight line, pull a thread then cut along the pulled thread line. Any open weave fabric will continue to fray so make sure to finish all edges with wool, stitching or folding techniques.

Fabric weighs 5.2 momme and is 114 cm wide. Minimum order .5 metre.
