This sample shows the Margilan Silk or Rarefied silk gauze nuno felted to Merino Top of similar and darker colors.Notice that you can clump and cluster the fabric as desired, and notice that this very open weave separates even more with nuno felting. The fabric is a natural white, and dyes beautifully!
*Some of us Americans have been calling ALL of the silks from Uzbekistan "Margilan Silk", however I have conferred with the factory and offer these corrections to terms:
MARGILAN SILK = Rarified Silk Gauze = the lightest weight, great for lining on garments, and in nuno felt surface design.
GAUZE = The medium weight. Rouches nicely (rouching is smaller than Habotai which is from China)
EXCELSIOR = Heavier weight. Rouches nicely, (rouching is smaller than Habotai which is from China)
