It is cream colored silk, no melting. It has antique lace, in a darker cream hue.
There is fine blue silk ribbon flowers around the bottom of the legs, and a cream ribbon tying the sides. The matching top is pleated with the lace and ribbons on the cuffs and down the front. It has a pleat and is flared in the back. The jacke is fully lined. It has snap closures, with ribbons at those areas on the outside.There is a tie at the neckline. The cap matches the jacket and pants. It fits the head well with a regular wig, but the mohair wig is so thick it makes the cap fit a little skimpy. I recycle everything I can so your package may not look pretty but it will be safe.
Packing may include washed plastic food containers, milk cartons, egg cartons, plastic bags, etc. Usually the head is in bubble wrap. These materials are light weight, take up a lot of space in the box, and is environmentally nicer than purchasing new stuff.
