SILK CHIFFON (extra wide) | BASE TONES

Treetops just received a special ‘Limited Edition’ shipment of extra wide (140cm, 55inch) Silk Chiffon fabric. Fantastic for sewing and nuno felting of garments because of its wider width and slightly heavier weight (5.5 momme).

We have created a unique dyeing technique for this fabric called ‘Base Tones’. The fabric is designed to coordinate with many different Colour Harmonies. By removing the highlight colour, a more tonal colourway has been created. It’s up to you then to add a variety of ‘splash’ colours to create your own personalized colour statement.

The Chiffon is a slightly more dense and lustrous weave than our Tissue Silk (Silk Georgette). It drapes more like Paj silk fabric and appearance is halfway between shiny and flat.

When you purchase 140cm (55inch) wide fabric, the cost is slightly higher, but remember you are purchasing 23% more fabric!

More colours coming soon!!

NEW SILK FABRICS

Paj Silk Fabric now in two weights | 2017

Treetops is delighted to offer our clients two different weights of Paj Silk fabric. We selected these fabrics with both nuno feltmakers and clothing designers in mind. The 4.5 momme Paj silk is lighter weight and fabulous for scarves and wraps. We suggest using the slightly denser and more sturdy 5 momme Paj for garments. When ordering you will be asked to select which weight of Paj Silk fabric will best suit your needs.

New Silk Mesh Fabric | 2016

We are very excited about our new custom designed Silk Mesh Fabric which is being woven just for Treetops. Lightweight, open weave, and highly lustrous. It has fantastic drape and is fabulous for nuno felting, creative machine embroidery and a myriad of other applications. Click here to view colour range. Above are few close-ups photos of the colourway Sea Grass. (May 2016)
