Moss Green Triacetate Crepe Knit, Made in Italy
Knit in Moss Green, a crepe weight, Triacetate/Polyester Blend with a wonderful drape and a wonderful hand, medium weight. Perfect for casual to formal wear as a dress, skirt, top, blouse, shirt – but one could also make a gown. Washable, 60″ wide, 4-Way Stretch. One of the more versatile fabrics we carry.
Triacetate is a high in cellulose synthetic fiber that is typically woven with the drape/feel of a silk crepe – it can, and should be used as such. We’ll make no bones about it, it’s easier to wash, less prone to wrinkles and can be sewn like a knit (even though it is technically a woven). It has all the silk characteristics without the maintenance – and thus, is one of the more popular fabrics out there today.
We sourced this from a cutting room in NYC, a larger designer who makes formal wear – this is a classic looking crepe that is formal, elegant but more comfortable than most textiles one would consider luxurious – part of the new world style.
It is not a sustainable fiber with the exception that it will last forever, and it is dead stock fabric.
Care Instructions: Cold Water Wash, NO HEAT dry – prefer to drip dry, but not heat table dry can be ok.
Price is per Yard.
