Vestment fabric choice is crucial to making the right vestment set for your priest or church. Traditionally vestments were made from silk, but silk is beyond the budget of many small churches. Fortunately, rayon brocade is both affordable and beautiful. Rayon brocade is made from man-made fibers of cellulose acetate. This acetate yarn has a rich and silky look and feel, resists wrinkles, and is less likely to fade than other fabrics.
This fabric is woven on a Jacquard loom, giving the fabric's design a raised appearance in a satin weave on a satiny background.
Washing tips: This is a delicate fabric and should be hand washed only in cold water. It should be line dried or laid flat to dry. Do not put this fabric in the dryer. Also do not use fabric conditioners, starch or dryer sheets on this fabric as it could cause discoloration. You can press this fabric while it is still damp on the wrong side with a cool iron. Store garments made from this fabric clean.
All of the fabrics shown here - in shades of purple, green, red, white and black - are 60 inches wide.
