Rayon Challis

Hi everyone, I purchased a white rayon challis for my hand dyed clothing line for Salabova . The fabric takes dye very well, It is lovely to work with, not very slippery but drapes well and it`s soft on touch. Because it`s a rayon, it shrinks a little when you wash it in hot water to set the dyes. I also iron it on low heat or preferably stem it a little to get the wrinkles out. Overall, I do recommend this product.
