This ex-designer taffeta is a a deep navy blue with a subtle silver shimmer running through it. Lightweight and crisp with a small amount of width-ways stretch, perfect for adding extra comfort into a garment. It is slightly sheer so might need lining depending on preference. Taffeta is woven with highly twisted fibres which give it a lustrous finish and sheen. It has a crisp feel and good structure, making it perfect for eveningwear. It is used in high-end clothing and makes a characteristic rustle noise as you move. Taffeta is also great for more casual clothes, we love to make a Everyday Top to wear with jeans!
Composition: Polyester and Elastane*
Stretch: Approximately 10% width-ways stretch

We try to take photos that are an accurate representation of our fabrics and their colours, but due to differences between devices and screens the colour may vary slightly. Unfortunately we are unable to offer samples as all of our fabrics are short run end of lines and will likely sell out by the time a sample is delivered. If you'd like to see a video of the fabric or more photos please send us an email or drop us a DM on instagram @newcrafthouse. If you are in London, you can also shop our fabric in person. You can find our opening times here.
*As all of our fabric and trim is deadstock we can't always be sure of the exact composition. We've given our best educated guess above!
