Silk habotai (also known as china silk lining) is a soft, glossy, lightweight, 8 mummy weight silk that is used to line finer garments. This fabrics is also wonderful for silk painting, embroidery and needle punch or needle felting projects. Historical re-enactment costumers love this fabric since little has changed in its production over the centuries.

Composition: 100% chinese silk

Width 90cm or 36 inches

Weight (gsm) 40

Manufacturing: woven.

Washing instructions: we recommend, especially if you are creating to sell, to pre-wash in hot water before dyeing or painting to remove any leftover residue from the silk worms (seracin) or finger prints and other stuff that can cause the fabric to dye unevenly. If painted/dyed follow instructions of paint/dyestuffs used for future washing.
