The slubbing in Dupioni Silk is natural since the yarn spun from the fibers of the silkworms's cocoon varies in thickness. These inconsistencies in texture add to the beauty of the fabric.Dupioni Silk is made from weaving rough irregular and often two different colors of 100% Silk threads. Dupioni (also referred to as Douppioni or Dupion) is a plain weave crisp type of silk fabric, produced by using fine thread in the warp and uneven thread reeled from two or more entangled cocoons in the waft. This creates tightly-woven yardage with a highly-lustrous surface. It is similar to shantung, but slightly thicker, heavier, and with a greater slub/nubs (cross-wise irregularity) count. Dupioni is often woven with differing colors of threads scattered through the warp and weft. This technique gives the fabric an iridescent effect. Dupioni is popular in bridal and other formal wear. It is suitable for upholstery, but if it is crafted into a curtain or drape, a substantial underlining must be used to protect the fabric from sunligh.
Silk Dupioni has much more prominent slubs (those crosswise irregularities in texture). Dupioni has an almost rustic look to it in weave only, but the incredible sheen and vibrant colors that silk dupioni is known for can render it suitable for prom dresses, bridal gowns, dazzling womens suits, and even baby outfits.
1The digital images we display have the most accurate color possible. However, due to differences in computer monitors, your monitor's settings can make the silk look slightly different than the silk's true color, intensity, brightness or contrast.Pictures are enlarged to show details. 3Silk is a natural fiber. The weaving of this fabric therefore may contain minor variations and irregularities that are characteristic of fine silk yarn and should in no way be treated as defects. 4 All Silk fabrics are dry clean only.
