Silk caps are made from cultivated cocoons that have been degummed and stretched over a frame shaped like a bell.

Each layer of the bells equal one cocoon stretched into an extremely thin layer. One silk cap "bell" consists of roughly two dozen caps and weighs roughly 1 oz.

Beautiful luster, has the advantage of being nearly continuous fiber.

This means you can spin it to a very fine thread and it will be strong.

It makes an excellent warp when weaving.

VERY VERSATILE

you can spin it into beautiful yarns, you can draw it into fine roving and knit or embroider with it in its unspun form, and you can blend it with other fibers to add bright color and gleaming highlights

Wonderful!

Interesting twist in using silk in Wet Felting for surface embellishments. Larger than hankies and a little more ‘sturdy’.

Fun detail

I love dying these silk caps to use as accents in my wet felted scarves and shawls. So easy to dye and peel apart easily.

Silk caps

I have not used them yet, but eagerly await the time to do so. I plan to dye them and use in some felting projects and knitting projects. .
