    I found this ......

    Fabric question

    in my stash I found this little picture sewn by my mother right after WW 2. I know she had some US connections. MY question now is this fabric known in the US or does someone know it's name. Just wondering.


    it is a shifty sort of fabric shining depending on the light.

    thanks in advance for any information

    I don't know about the fabric but the embroidery design is similar to those used on beautiful pillowcases and dresser scarves decades ago. Her work is lovely. It's a treasure for sure.

              It is beautiful work. It sort of looks like a crepe fabric. In the way it is fraying especially. It has the sparkle like this piece.

                No I don't think so. It's not as thick and heavy

                  I think crêpe is thinner and more seethru . But thank you

                    It looks like lurex?

                      Mom wore several bed jackets out. I believe they were rayon. Here's a link for information: https://vintagedancer.com/1940s/1940s-sleepwear/

                      It was not see through.

                        I guess not. For my feeling lurex is stiffer. This is real soft and shifty

                          Thank you for the very interesting link. It could be a rayon sort of fabric. I have not thought of that
