Hand-dyed Silk Hankies - Gold Nugget

Price: $15.95

Hankies (also known as mawata) are made from a single cocoon, stretched into ten inch square.  A single hankie (as light and airy as a spider web) is made from a single cocoon and weighs between one-third and one-half gram.

In the center area, the silk filaments cross-cross in all directions, bouncing the light in many directions; filaments along the "selvages" are parallel, concentrating the light reflection, making the selvages shinier than the center.

Gently pull apart the delicate 100% bombyx silk layers and attenuate each to knit it unspun or spin it into fine singles.  collage a few hankies together for silk fusion or add them to felting projects. 

This Funky Fiber Colorway randomly mixes various yellows and golds in each hankie.  Subtle color differences, but effective!

100% Bombyx Silk (also called cultivated or mulberry silk), hand-dyed in Colorado.

10 Gram (0.35oz) package
