Silk Noil

While silk is formed by the long, strong threads of a silkworm, silk noil is made from the shorter fibers leftover from production.  For this reason, it has a nubby-like texture from where these fibers begin and end.  Think of it like the plywood of silks.

Though it feels more like cotton, it has the thermal properties of silk and a good drape.  It is a dream to sew with because of its even weave and low movement.
