What’s so special about silk?
Not only that, but these silks were rescued from a shuttered textile mill in New Jersey, Alex Silks. A mill that had been open since the 1930’s. These silks were ready for production when the mill closed about 5 years ago.
And this is where you come in. Aside from display, what could these lovely threads be used for? I’ll be using some of them to display my bangles at my handmade shop. But I’m wondering if they could be used in replacement of traditional quilting cottons? Fill me in, experts!
