Henry sent a sample of 1/1.8 NM silk noil which arrived this morning; he says his company produced sweaters from this same silk noil for one of America’s foremost purveyors of business clothing for women.
The noil silk lily is fabulous! I love it! I gotta buy it!
What’s noil silk? It’s 100% silk, short fiber, no sheen, and it looks like cotton but has a faint odor of silk. The 1/1.8 NM is like a thin fabric tube and likely can be used for warp and weft; knitters and crocheters can do good things with it, too.
Tomorrow I’ll post pictures.
