What can lightweight silk habotai be used for?
Ultra soft and lightweight, our silk habotai features a smooth satin finish and a soft handle making it ideal for linings, scarves, airy dresses, kimonos and very light lingerie. It is even popular for silk painting. This silk is often referred to as “Jap Silk.” Any reservations about its fraying nature is more than made up by its ease of dyeing, starching or folding.
Keep in mind that habotai tears under pressure, so it is essential that you don’t use it to create tight fitted garments.
