Default Sourcing Cotton Silk blend fabric

I am looking for a cotton silk blend like Robert Kaufman Radiance but can't find any readily available. Does anyone have suggestions for a good substitute?

Many thanks

Sorry, for you cost would be pretty high. It is fabulous to work on and has a beautiful sheen. It does need a light weight stabilization tho. Here in the U S retail runs about $20.00per yard. I haven’t seen anything else like it. Depending on your project maybe Duponi silk may work and be more available to you. Hope someone else has better advice. Good luck

Hetty--I made a whole cloth using RJR Radiance which I ordered from eQuilter.com not sure how outrageous the postage may be, but it was about the only place I found it with several color selections. BTW, I did not use any stablizer--I was nervous about it being sheerer than cottons, so emailed Angela Walters (she uses it for her samples)and she said to just go for it! So I did.

I have been looking too here in the states. From what I have found so far it is discontinued darn! My local shop said that Checkers still showed it on their site, but that is a strictly wholesale company. Not much help sorry

Thank you for your help. I think a little jaunt up to London is now in order to some of the specialist fabric shops.
