Silk noil is an absolute delight to wear! It feels very different to how it appears. Although textural, it is very soft. It drapes just as you'd expect a silk to drape. It's luxurious, but given that it doesn't have the high sheen of traditional silk, it's a lot easier to work into your everyday wardrobe. It definitely has an understated elegance about it. Silk noil resists wrinkles well, which I've found has made it a very wearable fabric for things like lightweight pants, dresses and blouses.
If you've not worked with silk noil before - please order a swatch card so you can feel this lovely fabric for yourself! It is surprisingly a very stable fabric making it lovely to work with.

Care instructions: Prewash in the same way you intend to care for your finished garment. Dry cleaning is often recommended to help retain silk noil's colour vibrancy, however it can be washed gently using the delicate cycle on your washing machine. We do however suggest a gentle hand wash for best results with colour retention.
To dry you can lay flat or line dry. I have pre-washed + pre-shrunk my silk noil in the dryer. There was about 5% shrinkage in my experience.
