Silk Hankies - 'Blues and Purples’


Sold Out

Approximately 10g of silk mawata squares, dyed in coordinating colours ready for you to draft out and spin. Also known as silk hankies, a packet of these is comprised of many layers of silk. Each layer is formed from a single silk cocoon, which has been stretched out on a frame, before stacking together with many others. To spin, you'll need to separate the layers and either pre-draft the long silk fibres, or attenuate them while you spin. There's a bit of a knack to it, but silk hankies are lots of fun to spin and they make a beautiful lustrous yarn.

While we try to photograph our fibre as accurately as possible, variations between monitors mean that your screen may not show the exact shade of the fibre in real life.  If you have any queries or are looking for a particular colour match, do message me, I'll try to help.
