Silk by the metre

Silk is one of the most popular fabrics that Whaleys sell and with over 90 different options available it isn't hard to see why. From 100% silk to mixed silk blends and silk sateen we stock products of the highest quality to ensure your projects are given the best possible start.

Silk sateen fabric is known for its even sheen 100% silk satin is a highly reflective fabric that achieves an almost liquid like lustre on any garment. With a fine woven finish that is cooling and incredibly light on the skin, silk satin was originally created in China during the middle ages, travelling the silk road to Europe where it was fashioned into fine garments, linen and soft furnishings.

Our range of silks are available in several finishes from sand washed and coated to crepe backed and mixed lycra, organza or viscose satin fabrics. To feel the quality of our material we also provide a small fabric sample which you can request to fully appreciate the fabrics on offer.
