Today, Silk Gauze/Chiffon - the established classic - is the most popular ground for nuno-felting. These scarves are the finest crepe fabric with diligently hand-rolled edges.
The manufacturing of this extremely delicate fabric on traditional Chinese looms is still a real art! The fabric is woven from the same yarns as Pongee 05, but with an additional, challenging procedure: the yarns for Silk Gauze 3.5 are intricately twisted and over-wound to create the typical crepe-effect. The warp as well as the weft is made from these over-wound yarns.
Silk Gauze 3.5 is suited for all silk-painting techniques, and of course it is ideal for nuno-felting.
