Our slubby silk-look linen and cupro, Steel Blue, is a beautiful lustrous fabric with a crisp handle, very similar to a Dupion silk except a little softer and a little stronger, featured here in a mid silvery grey tone.
Woven with fine yarns of linen and cupro, this excellent fabric has a steel metallic blue shot effect due to a natural white warp and admiral blue weft.
Linen is renowned for being an age old favourite, the mainstay of this fabric. Also featuring cupro, a fabulous regenerated cellulose fibre, recycled from cotton plants! Boasting excellent advantages, cupro is super soft, low irritant, moisture absorbent, cool in summer, warm in winter and just like rayon produces it a silky fibre which boasts a subtle lustrous sheen.
The versatile Steel Blue not only has a stable crisp handle, it also has a smooth drape quality, perfect for luxurious clean cut wardrobe staples or dramatic and sophisticated garments usually fashioned in Dupion silk. As a Dupion silk substitute, this is perfect for vegans and people concerned with sustainability.
Ideal for neat silhouettes like sharply tailored jackets, skirts and trousers, fitted sheath dresses. A fab colour when teamed with pastels.
Make the most of the lustrous sheen by draping in fit and flare style dresses and gowns. Try drape and tuck Viv Westwood styles too. Vintage patterns are great for this fabric too, think classic glamour of the '40s & '50s.
