Also known as "China Silk", these lightweight and breezy white Habotai scarves are the most popular for dyeing and painting.
These have machine hems with 100% silk thread. Ready to dye and paint or use as is. This is what you may hear called a playsilk mini size 21”x21” and silk type. This is the 8mm Habotai which stands up to wear and tear a bit easier than the 5mm.
We recommend to pre-wash this silk in hot water and Synthrapol before dyeing, painting or using to remove any leftover residue from the silk worms (Seracin) or finger prints and other stuff that can cause the fabric to dye unevenly.
