Tissue silk shantung is quite similar to other shantungs except that it is lighter in weight. It has a slightly rough, irregular surface characterized by the same horizontal slubs as dupioni. The semi-crisp fabric is lustrous with a subtle sheen. It drapes well and holds gathers and pleats beautifully. This elegant fabric is a wonderful choice for christening gowns, special occasion dresses, smocking, general sewing, doll clothes. Fabric is washable. Handwash prior to garment construction to preshrink.
This peach color is absolutely yummy. It has beautiful golden overtones.
