Product description

Product description

Voile is a very fine, airy fabric, usually woven from cotton. Ours, however, are made of a mix of cotton and silk. The silk makes them lighter and finer and gives them a subtle sheen, while the cotton adds softness and helps then hold their shape. Like habotai, voile makes a very good lining for light garments (dresses, blouses, jackets) but is also a wonderful stand-alone material for tops, tunics, skirts, and dresses. Lighter shades have a tendency to be sheer, making the use of the lining or underlayer recommendable.

Voile floats beautifully and is a good match for loose cut styles, billowing scarves and wraps, or for curtains and drapes.

Care

We recommend dry cleaning this fabric at a reliable dry cleaner. In our silk washing tests this fabric stood up to gentle hand washing but shrank slightly due to the cotton content. If you risk hand washing, use lukewarm water and a delicate detergent for woolens; do not wring or squeeze dry; block dry on a flat surface. Iron on the lowest setting. Avoid water droplets.
