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!!
The Silk Mesh Design Pack is designed using our Exclusive Silk Mesh Fabric in conjunction with our Silk Hankies and Bombyx Silk tops. It’s a great way to obtain a variety of products to play with, all of which have been chosen around a central colour theme.
We have put together eight colourways for your designing pleasure: Tropical, Ghost Gum, Bush Tucker, Dark & Moody, Ambient, Obsession, The Melbourne, River of Blue.
Each Silk Mesh Design Pack contains:
- Silk Mesh fabric in 3 Colour Harmonies, each piece is 25cm long x 114cm wide
- 15gms of Silk Hankies in 3 colourways
- 12gms of Bombyx Silk tops in 2-3 colourways
Dryandra is our newest earthy colourway named after a rare Banksia species found only in the south west bush of Western Australia. It’s colours appear as if they have been naturally dyed from eucalyptus.
Treetops has just expanded our Silk Mesh range to include a Basic Black Solid Colour. We are confident you will find this a very useful addition to your palette. The light cooling cerise blue in Ningaloo really glows when dyed on our Silk Mesh.
Treetops has just expanded our Silk Mesh range to include our incredible versatile black/grey combo called Silverback. Also recently added is Regrowth. It looks great when paired with Adobe or Burnished Brown. Snowy Owl is also new and a very classic combination of pale-grey and mid-greys moving towards white. We are confident you will find a use for this versatile colourway in your wardrobe.
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.
