This Silk Twill Scarf (Tested by AWTA as 100% silk) combines the utilitarian strength of the twill weave with the natural durability of silk whilst maintaining a fine slippery, smooth texture. It has a wonderful drape, great lustre and gives a rich sheen to enrich vibrant colours. Weighing approximately 50g per square meter it is rated at 12mm in the silk weight scale.
