Satin Charmeuse 12 Momme


12 momme Charmeuse is commonly used for blouses, lingerie, and scarves.

This is a standard fabric for the garment industry; available in two weights: a light-medium 12 momme and heavier 19 momme. A shiny satin on one side and matte crepe on the other, it is woven from conventionally raised silk that has been reeled from the cocoon. Only reeled silk can make this lustrous satin.

Colors are naturally dyed by Master Natural Dyer Cheryl Kolander who is Aurora Silk.

Colors are individually dyed in small lots to your order!  Prices vary by colors as dye costs and time vary by color.  Email us or call during our office hours for a quote!
