Margilan silk gauze

Margilan silk is a very open weave silk gauze hand loomed in Margilan, in  Uzbekistan.  We hand dye the silk here in Perth, Australia in a range of colours. The  apparent irregularities of the weave is due to the rustic method of production. As a result, the silk gauze or scrim is almost transparent. Due to the loose weave, this fabric is an ideal silk for felting. It has textural and layering possibilities as well as other fibre applications like paper making & textile collage.

With a width of up to 90cm, it is the lightest silk available at 2.5 momme & around 8 gm per metre. It has a delicate lustre unlike some other lightweight gauze, chiffon and organza.  Other names for this fabric are butterfly silk, gossamer gauze or Uzbek silk.

The natural silk we sell is slightly off white and dyes well with natural or acid dye.
