Silk Hankies - 'Unicorns and Rainbows'

£7.00

Sold Out

Approximately 25g of silk mawata squares, dyed in random 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.
