• Dupioni Silk is a lustrous natural fibre which contains irregularities of variations in shade and/or weave. These irregularities are characteristics of silk and
should, in no way, be considered a defect. We highly recommend the use of Lining AND Interlining to extend the life of silk drapes as well as enhance the look of your finished product.
NOTE: Due to the uneven warp in natural silk, this plaid (as with ALL natural silk plaids) is not suitable for drapes or other projects where the pattern and/or repeat needs to be exact (I.E. when widths are being sewn together and pattern matching is crucial).
*As a general rule, the larger the plaid, the harder it is to match the repeats in the plaid*
*Actual colors may vary depending on individual monitor settings *Pattern direction runs up the roll unless pictured or stated otherwise *Multiple yards of the same item are shipped in one continuous piece
SHIPPING NOTE: Due to drastically rising shipping costs, we're now having to send as many yards of fabric folded as we possibly can (up to 20 yards for most fabrics but up to 30 yards or more for lightweight fabrics).
We do offer the option of a roll fee of $15 to ensure your fabric comes on a roll/tube as that is the minimum additional surcharge we incur for a tube by the carriers. We're so sorry it's come to this... We hate it, you hate it, we all hate it :(
Washing Instructions & Info As a general rule, unless stated otherwise, home decorator products are recommended to be dry cleaned. This does not mean they will not wash well... It just means to wash at your own risk. If you intend to wash an item after it has been made, we strongly encourage you to test a small piece first to make sure it is suitable for washing; and if you are satisfied with the result, then proceed with washing the entire yardage. Also remember to wash the product in the same manner you will wash the project afterwards (i.e. Do not wash in a warmer temp. after your project has been made and do not dry in dryer if the initial yardage was not dried in dryer).
100% Cotton - Expect quite a bit of shrinkage and wrinkling to occur if washing 100% cotton products. And when dealing with home decor printed material, the print will sometimes fade. **We highly recommend 100% cotton materials be dry cleaned.
100% Polyester - Polyester products are normally ideal for washing. There should be little to no shrinkage or wrinkling. However, unless stated as washable, we still encourage washing a test piece first. Also, if there is a sheen to your fabric... It may diminish slightly after each wash. Please take this into consideration.
Poly/Cotton Blends - Polyester and cotton blended materials can usually be washed, however, you may experience slight shrinkage and wrinkling. The rule still applies to test a small piece, and then, if satisfied, wash the entire yardage before making your project. The shiny material rule applies here too... If there is a sheen to your fabric, it may diminish slightly after each wash. Please take this into consideration.
100% Silk - Silks can be either hand washed and air dried or dry cleaned.
Please Note: We are providing this information as a customer service. If you choose to wash your materials, we strongly encourage a pre-wash test. And per our Return Policy: Returns are not accepted if washed or cut... So if it is vital that your material is washable, we recommend ordering a SAMPLE for your pre-wash test.

Quality of packaging, the fabric itself, and the super fast shipping makes this purchase 2nd to none!
