Rayon Voile is a luxuriously soft, sheer material with a gorgeous drape. The term voile comes the French word for veil. This semi-synthetic fabric is crafted from wood pulp in the form of purified cellulose fiber. The pulp is converted to a soluble compound, which is then dissolved and inserted into a spinneret to form the new refined fibers. Voile Fabric fibers are then configured in a tight, plain weave, meaning the warp and weft yarns are woven into a basic crisscross formation. With its light weight and delicate drape, rayon voile is perfect for summer wear, tunics and blouses.
