3-ply silk crepe, technically speaking is a 4-ply silk crepe that has a tad less heft (hence 36 mm, not 40 mm). We could probably get away with selling this as a 4-ply but we would feel bad. Nevertheless, you should compare it to the 4-ply and this it is in line as the “grande dame of silk crepe” – Traditionally described as the most elegant quality of Silk for its heavy weight but luxurious drape it has the possibility to be made into anything from a suit/jacket to trousers, a gown or skirt. There is some bias give (or sometimes lycra), which adds comfort and…. possibilities.
Unfortunately at our level, it is getting harder and harder to buy large quantities of heavier silk crepe silk crepe from designers and cutting rooms. That means we will eventually have to get it from mills and the prices are going to be through the roof. Get the dead stock while you can!
Price is per Yard.
