Yarn Dyed Warm Brown Vintage Silk Pinstripe By the Still-Tied BOLT #910
Two warm browns, one lighter, one darker, and a goldish tan combine to read towards russet. Fine pinstripes are woven not dyed. This vintage silk is still tied with tan floss and has two labels still attached. It's 14" wide and looks to be in excellent condition, and we think it's 12-13 yards on the bundle/bolt. It's lightweight and thin; the whole bundle is 14" x 5" x 1", and weighs about 12.5 ounces. It has a bit of shine and sleekness, is very smooth but doesn't seem drapey. It's probably somewhat crisp, with body, but it's hard to tell with how tightly tied it is. Yarn dyed stripe so both sides look the same. We are told this silk was created for a cape-type of kimono called a Tanzen. Japan.
We're offering this by the full bolt, so order "1" for the still-tied bundled bolt.
