Its all silk, including the thread which is silk knitting yarn, needlepunched onto a piece of felted wool curtain interlining. I used three different weights of silk fabric. The lilac background piece (dress weight) is quite scrunchy, the circles feel quite soft (suiting weight) and the light coloured pieces (from a piece of very fine sari silk) feel really soft and fluffy. I like this. I can't decide whether to leave it as it is or carry on and embellish it.
