Silk shantung in Delhi Green

This is a wonderful green silk shantung, 54" wide. We show it with a Sherwin-Williams fan deck for you to view the color, which is difficult to reproduce because of the wonderful shading of this natural fiber. Silk Shantung has slubs that are much finer than those that characterize dupioni silk. Silk shantung has a good amount of body, lovely crispness, is somewhat thinner than dupioni and is suitable for garments and apparel as well as drapery. It is the “happy-medium” between a drapey silk charmeuse and a stiff silk dupioni or taffeta. Besides the popular uses of silk in home decorating and quilting projects, silk shantung is terrific for evening wear, flower girls’ dresses, bridal gowns or sashes, fabric flowers, a special occasion that calls for an exquisite outfit or a room that requires sumptuous texture and color.
