Silk Carrier Rods - 25g

Price: $6.95

Silk Carrier Rods are the by–product of reeling silk from the cocoon. As the silk filament is unraveled from the cocoon into skein form, some of the filaments get wound around the machinery. This silk, with the sericin still in it, is then slit and removed. The rods are 5 – 5½" (13 – 15cm) long when whole and unscrunched.

There may be some short pieces and partially wound cocoons in the mix. Sometimes the rods are cylindrical (showing the shape of the machinery rod) and sometimes they're thinner and have been pressed flat. The sericin can make them feel like tight wads, but you can open them up to their full size.

Rods are wonderfully textural for stitching, silk fusion and any application needing depth. They can be pressed flat or pulled apart to reveal the interesting criss–cross of the fibres.

These rods have so much personality, you won't know what you can do with them until you try.
