Silver Gray Silk "Gauze" - $14.00 yd.
In the 18th and 19th centuries, sheer, crisp, woven silk known as "Gauze" was popular; especially for Lady’s garments as trims, overlays, neckerchiefs, caps, aprons & mantelets. Originally woven with two warp yarns twisted over the weft yarn, the weave was stable and strong. It was a sheer, light, semi-crisp fabric, sometimes woven with designs or flowers, and sometimes embroidered.
