Here are some words I never thought I would utter: I bought three yards of silk.
It's raw silk and I spent some time staring at 4" swatches from Dharma before deciding which one to get.
In all honesty, I've no idea what to do with it.
I bought it so I could experiment with eco dyeing, figured why set myself up for failure straight out of the gate using cotton when everything I've read says silk takes the color much better.
But there's something about this one I like. It's rough like cotton, I like it's odd ruggedness. It's still much more drapey then I'm used to but I'm wondering if I should consider it for other things.
What about you? What do you do with silk?
