A gossamer-like silk organdy with a loose weave, used extensively in textile restoration. The ultrafine material is carefully laid over delicate works to prevent further wear on fine furnishings–unnoticeable until you get very close. We’ve used it over delicate wall hangings and very early, embroidered chair covers, to shield the work to help extend their life as far as possible.

Crêpeline is also used as a support for fragile works: torn works are placed over it and held with tiny stitches to an all but invisible ground.
