Dyed Silk Noil

Standard

 

So today I show you some fat quarters that I dyed recently.  Silk receives dye very well allowing for a deep saturation.  I just love the results achieved in this fabric.  Silk noil is a nubby coarse type of silk, but once washed it becomes a much softer texture with a beautiful drape.These fat quarters (above) are mottled colors as you can see, with the exception of the black quarters.  Easy to care for – throw in the wash on gentle and can be machine dried or hung.

About stitchedanddyed

Traveling a great deal as a child I have now settled in New England and it is home. When I started my blog it was mostly so that I could see my fiber works in one place and not have to go through storage containers looking for them! It helps to keep me on track and turn those UFO's into finished pieces - so far it is working. I love gathering with my family, we always have fun, usually around a meal and we laugh a lot. I love fabrics, gardening, music, reading, cooking, traveling and love being home, as well as all sorts of other things.
