An irregular rough silk reeled from double cocoons or cocoons spun side-by-side which are interlocked, making it necessary to reel them together. The unevenness of the yarn confines its use. It is available in both Chinese and Indian silk and is woven in a hand loom or power loom.
Also known as raw or wild silk, dupion silk ranges from soft and heavily slubbed to smooth and full bodied. The beauty of dupion silk is its versatility, being suitable for both soft furnishings, bridal, coats, jackets and evening wear.
