silk types

Postby tanyabentham » Tue Aug 09, 2016 3:56 pm

I'm trying to decide which silk from my stash to use to line the sleeves of a c12th bliaut style frock. The main dress will be a repro silk brocade from sartor, I need a contrast or tone colour

I have satin, and I know satins ok for c12th, but what I have is very dark blue and I'm not sure it works.

the alternative is a watered taffeta/moire. I know moire silk is found in the later middle ages but I'm not too sure about the c12th/13th? anybody?
