Treetops has created a unique dyeing technique for this fabric called ‘Base Tones’ which offers a more subtle tonal colourway, unlike our standard Colour Harmonies or Colour Marks dyeing methods. Often one needs a background fabric which won't compete as heavily with your foreground, our Base Tones are a great option. Our Base Tones also have the ability to coordinate with more than one of our wool Colour Harmonies.
Silk Chiffon possesses a slightly more lustrous weave than our Tissue Silk (Silk Georgette) but is not as shiny as our Paj (Habotai) silk fabric. It also features an elegant drape and handle.
NEW to Treetops in June 2019! We are excited to offer a 'Special Limited Edition Sale Priced' 4.3 momme extra wide, Silk Chiffon (140cm wide,55inches). This fabric is fine and translucent enough to see through. It is an excellent choice for fine nuno felting.
Treetops is also offering a special 'Limited Edition' 6.5 momme' extra wide (140cm, 55inch) Silk Chiffon fabric. This fabric has fantastic drape and would lend itself to any sewing project or be an excellent choice for a more sturdy nuno felted garment.
Remember when you purchase fabric 140cm (55inch) wide it contains 23% more fabric than a normal 114cm (45inch) wide fabric. For a price comparison, if this fabric was 114cm wide(45inch), it would only cost A$16.70 per metre. A huge savings over our other fabrics!
