This fabric woven of wild eri silk has a wonderful, almost velvety softness. It is rather like a very fine cotton, but so much lighter, with the subtle, matte sheen typical of wild silks. It is a pleasure to wear and has a subtle warmth.

This natural silk material is woven in a herringbone pattern (broken twill), making it fairly sturdy and crisp for such a fine fabric. It makes wonderful shirts, tunics, blouses, and skirts. It is stiffer than our other eri silks (twill, diamond weave), so we don’t recommend it for patterns that call for a very fluid material. In lighter shades this fabric tends to be sheer, so we recommend a thin lining.

Eri silk is one of the most popular “wild” silks. Unlike classic silk, it is derived from the empty cocoons left behind by the eri silk moth (Philosamia ricini), so the pupa inside is not harmed, a fact that has earned it the nickname “peace silk.”
