Black Gold Silk Tweed Fabric is made from a combination of silk, cotton and lurex threads, and weighs anywhere from 106 to 150 mommes. Raw silk and cotton yarns and filaments are hand-dyed in a mixture of colors, and woven on hand looms using gold metallic lurex threads. It is characteristically woven with thicker weft yarns and finer warp yarns, giving the surface of the fabric textured, horizontal ribs. This multidimensional, multicolored raw silk fabric is most commonly used for blazers, jackets, shorts, and other women's wear. The fabric is sold by the Yard, and measures 48 inches in width.
