Crepe De Chine is a substantial 16.5 momme crepe silk with a lustrous (but not shiny) surface. This is a standard fabric of the garment industry. A good choice for those who do not want to iron, as it resists wrinkles. Machine woven of reeled cultivated silk, very even and standard. Because the weave is so tight, this is the most durable of the cultivated silks. Dyes beautifully. Drapes incredibly, especially when cut on the bias.
