Silk Velvet is rich, shimmery and very luxurious. It is silk on one side and the other side has slightly crushed short pile velvet. It shimmers and the colour changes as the light hits it. It is made of both silk and rayon ( a plant based fabric). It adds a little something extra to bouquets, draping beautifully yet still light enough to catch the breeze.
Silks are all washed before and after dyeing, but can be washed in cool water with a touch of gentle detergent. Darker colours may release a touch of colour. Iron and fluff before use.
Amaranth is a rose-red colour . It is lighter than both carmine and crimson.
