Fabric Description: This is a soft, lightweight silk. slightly translucent, a solid dark green with hints of dark indigo blue from the dyeing process; presents as solid  dark-green from distance, but, examined up close the warp-weft of the weave is seen as a tiny mesh pattern (Note: We were unable to clearly show this in our close-ups, DKL); fabric probably for use in making a summer wear kimono or possibly an under kimono.

Recommended for making scarf/accessories or sashiko.
