"100% silk dupioni fabric. Hand dyed goldenrod. 54\" wide. Dupioni (sometimes spelled 'douppioni' or 'dupion'), is a lustrous silk often woven from two different colors of threads, so that it shimmers or changes color in the light. Dupioni is made from an irregular, rough silk reeled from double cocoons or cocoons spun side-by-side which are interlocked, making it necessary to reel them together. It has a moderately crisp drape, fairly reflective luster, and a slubby texture."
