Needles + thread: Microtex 60/10 are our needles of choice for this fabric. Satin weaves are generally a 3 over, 1 under weave meaning there is a longer surface thread on the sewing surface. This is what creates the super smooth surface, but also can make these weaves prone to snagging if you're using the wrong sized needle, or a blunt needle.
Changing your needles throughout a silk project (or other satin / sateen projects) is suggested. For what it's worth, the cost of a couple of needles far outweighs getting to the final top stitching and snagging your beautiful garment!
Sandwashed silk does best when pre-treated and cared for with hand washing. We suggest using a tiny amount of gentle detergent or baby shampoo, in cool to cold water.
By sure to rinse your silk several times to ensure you've removed all traces of the detergent. Lay flat on a drying rack or hang to dry in the shade.
