Great dependable dupioni

This is my go to silk for linings. Beautiful quality dupioni silk with that tell tale almost crispy feel in the hand. The metallic ones are fantastic as well. Highly recommend.

The Color is perfect!

I needed to find some silk that would serve as a backing and border for a wall hanging that my daughter and I are making. I searched for silk yardage online and Fabric Wholesale Direct (FWD) was the answer. There was only one color of yellow silk that looked like it might work so I placed an order. Wow! It is perfect. The color is a perfect match and I love the drape of the fabric. My experience with FWD has been rewarding and I am looking forward to placing future purchases! Thank you for having what I needed and for the excellent service.

silk dupioni swatches

I ordered three swatches, they came pretty quick. They are a nice big size, 3-4” square (about 8-10cm), labeled clearly, and the fabric is really very nice. Overall very happy.
