These are the types of Silk I use to paint on!

Crepe de Chine for scarves
A light weight silk that floats
A light to medium weight silk that is a little floaty.
Both drape beautifully!

Twill for scarves
towards a medium weight silk
has a lovely warm feel and slightly thicker than the crepe de chines
drapes nicely

Textured Silk for infinity snood scarves
a good medium weight warm feel silk
on the thick side of silk fabrics
drapes nicely

Crepe de chine for garments
a medium weight fabric with a wonderful drape, just a bit thicker than the scarf weights

Habutai for scarves
a basic weave silk, lightweight
drapes and floaty

Crepe backed Satin for ties
a medium weight silk that hangs well with a slight lustre sheen

Twill for handbags
a medium to heavy weight silk
warm feel
