Habutai silk fabric (sometimes spelled habutae, habotai and hautae) is fine soft silk that has a smooth, thin, limp hand. Habutai silk is heavier and has more luster than China silk, but is still thin and lighter than fabrics like silk charmeuse. It is relatively similar to voile, but is made of a tighter weave. Habutai silk is moderately easy to sew and it works well for semi-fitted, loose fitting and very loose fitting apparel. It is also a superb lining fabric due to its light and smooth qualities. Habutai silk is great for loose full styles, soft flowing styles and draped styles. Habutai silk is reversible, wears evenly and resists snags and our habutai silk comes dyed in rich, contemporary and fun colors. Order with confidence with our easy, no hassle returns policy.
