Charmeuse Hemp Silk - 68%H 32%S - 4.8oz
This is the fabric for you if you’re looking for something delicate and classy. Unlike our other silk fabrics, this charmeuse silk has a sheen on one side, whilst having a more matte finish on the other.
We think this fabric could be brilliant for crafting anything that you want to really shine and is understandably our most popular wedding dress materials. The only limit to this fabric’s uses, of course, is your own imagination! It’s also surprisingly durable for a fabric with such an elegant appearance thanks to the wonders of hemp.
As you can probably tell, we’re mad about hemp, and this beautiful Charmeuse Hemp Silk is 68% organic hemp. Hemp demands less water than alternative natural materials, and requires absolutely no pesticide, herbicide or chemical fertilizer in its production and is 100% biodegradable. It’s also a natural carbon sink, meaning that it is brilliant at capturing CO2 from the atmosphere and trapping it, and is able to grow in soil where other crops can’t, whilst leaving the earth better and more fertile than the day it was planted!
