    About our Fabrics

    Nice Threads carries silk and linen fabrics appropriate for dyeing, sewing, surface design and nuno-felting. All are natural white, and are PFD (Prepared For Dyeing) but it is suggested that all fabrics be scoured before dyeing. Please purchase in 1 yard increments.

    Silk Fabrics

    Light weight silks

    These fabrics are suggested as the best weight for nuno felting. The weave structure is loose enough for the wool to work through and bond to the fabric. They also are appropriate for scarves, wraps and light garments. All are 100% silk.

    Silk Chiffon - Light silk chiffon is perfect for nuno felting, as it has body and drape but is woven loosely to allow the wool fibers to work through. Scarves and wraps are especially nice in chiffon.
    6mm, 45" width $9.95/yd

    Silk Organza - Lots of body, adds structure and dimension to any item.
    42" width. $9.25/yd

    Silk Habotai (aka China Silk) - Light, soft and lustrous. Suitable for experienced nuno-felters.
    4.5mm (Paj weight), 54" width - $9.00/yd

    Dress-weight fabrics

    Silk Noil Herringbone - Wonderful garment weight fabric, with a subtle suiting herringbone pattern. Natural Ecru.
    45" width - $9.25/yd

    Silk Noil gauze - A nubby soft fabric, similar to cotton and linen in it's breathability and wonderful for light summer wear.
    45" width - $7.00/yd

    Heavy weight Linen - Comfortable against the skin, heavy linen is a good fabric for outerwear for summer nights and spring and fall days. It takes dye with equal intensity as the lightweight linen.
    60" width - $11.00/yd
