What is Silk Charmeuse?

Silk Charmeuse is a lightweight silk fabric woven with a satin weave, where the warp threads
cross over three or more of the backing (weft) threads.
The front side of the fabric has a satin finish – lustrous and reflective – whereas
the back has a dull finish. It is reversible.
Silk charmeuse is delicate and soft.
Charmeuse differs from plain satin in that charmeuse is softer and lighter in weight.

We weave the base fabric in the East and bring in GREIGE GOODS into the USA,
where the fabric is dyed into our specific fashion colors.

Momme weight is a way of measuring things developed by the Japanese.
It is the most common way of measuring light weight silk and is
pronounced much like the word “mummy.”
The standard for measuring momme weight is by using a piece of fabric that
is 100 yards long and 45 inches wide. If that piece of fabric weighs 19 pounds
then the momme weight of that silk is 19.
The higher the momme weight the heavier the fabric which means a greater
amount of silk was used in the weaving process.

This SILK Charmeuse is 8 MM and is about 72 grams per yard.
