Silk Stripe

We have commissioned a narrow Silk Stripe woven specially for The Silk Route in India. The stripes are woven at 12 stripes to the inch (approximately 5 stripes to the centimetre). The stripes run along the length of the roll (along the warp).

It is a similar weight to Silk Dupion and can be used successfully with it.  As well as being excellent for patchwork and quilting and for fashion, the width of the stripes makes it ideal for the miniaturist.
