Silk Georgette

Silk Georgette Fabric by James Hare is sleek, chic and effortlessly stylish. This pure silk fabric combines with our Silk Chiffon to create beautiful medium and super-weight garments. The fabric has a matte crinkly finish. Named after the early 20th century by the French Designer, Georgette de la Plante. Made from pure silk with highly twisted yarns. 

Its characteristic crinkly surface is created by alternating s-twist (threads appear to go ‘up’ to the left) and z-twist (to the right) yarns in both the warp and the weft. Springier and less lustrous than it’s closely related silk chiffon fabric. Fabulous draping properties produce amazing flowing and graceful dresses. 

The fabric is often carefully pre-shrunk, prior to you constructing your garment. This may allow for a very gentle hand-wash, as opposed to having to dry-clean your outfit. There remains different schools of thought on this and it would of course, be entirely your own personal choice and decision.
