Silk Shantung - fuzzy?
Slubs, I expect, but pilling?

I just received an order of silk shantung in the mail. Aside from the characteristic slubs, I noticed that is seemed to have a very light pilling (or heavy layer of dust -- looks like one or the other).

Does this sound correct? To me it seems to have an old, or worn look, but I don't have much experience with this type of fabric, so I don't know what to expect.... fwiw, it arrived unwrapped except for the cardboard box it arrived in!

Otherwise, it's nice and shiny.

Not with any shantung I've worked with--silk or poly. I remember the silk shantung of the 70's--such gorgeous fabric! Even with the stuff of today, I haven't seen any pilling that you describe.

Personally, I'd suggest returning it. This doesn't sound right at all.
