Habutai Silk



  • Habutai is a plain weave silk with a smooth surface and beautiful lustre
  • It is soft, lightweight and lustrous
  • It wrinkles less than other fabrics
  • Its weight can range from 5mm to the more heavy 12mm.  Most scarves are made of 8mm Habutai
  • Excellent tensile strength
  • It takes colour well and is the preferred silk for silk painting and printing because it’s more controllable than lighter weight silks.


A great all-purpose silk, suitable for wearable art, scarves, pictures, quilting, soft furnishings, screens, cards.

Choose by weight based on what you are making.  For example, 8 mm is an ideal scarf weight, 10 mm is a traditional weight for shirts and 12 mm for light pants, cushions etc
