Product Options

100% Silk 54 inches wide

In the 18th century as well as the 19th century silk gauze was popular especially for Lady’s garments as trims, overlays, neckerchiefs, caps, aprons & mantelets.   Originally woven with two warp yarns twisted over the weft yarn the weave was stable and strong.  It was a sheer light semi-crisp fabric sometimes woven with designs or flowers and sometimes embroidered.  Our “gauze” is sheer and softly crisp with a narrow finished selvage which can be used for hems of caps, trims, aprons etc.
