Four wool bags lined with silvercloth for a friend that makes silver jewelry to store his wares in so they stay shiny!

Thanks!

They're easy to make, just use a thick/sturdy outer layer so you don't get residue on anything and you protect the silver cloth from light. I used wool since it provides a little padding too.

is slivercloth easy to find? I really should make a protective bag for my shiny hat.

Most big fabric stores carry it. It's pricey, so plan to use a coupon. If you can't find it out by you, lemme know and I can pick some up for you.

Ok-I give. Silver cloth was not one of the two thousand I had to memorize, my google-fu is failing, and my text book doesn't have it.

So, what is it?

It's a fabric that feels like a dense flannel, is usually dark brown, and is impregnated with some chemical that retards silver tarnish. Theoretically, silver pieces kept in it need polishing less often. The suit-case type cases for real silver sets are usually lined with it and you can but it by the yard at many fabric stores. It usually runs about $15/yard.

Primarily defined by its silver polish finish?

That's pretty cool. Thank you.
