Perfect silk material

This is real silk dupioni, and carries with it the raw silk barely-there sheen that we know and love. Lightweight with a crisp feel that holds its shape. I'm using it for a blessing dress and will embroider ribbon rose flowers along the hem. Perfect for an early spring Sabbath Day event.
