De-gumming is a way of releasing the sticky substance that holds the strands of silk together to form the cocoon, so these are still roughly cocoon shaped but fluffy by comparison with their intact counterparts. This is a natural protein fiber from silk worms so you will need to extract the chrysalis remains that will be throughout the product. These de-gummed silk cocoons are perfect for dying, spinning, or manipulating into fun silk crafts of unlimited possibility! With a little stretching you can fluff up the de-gummed silk cocoons and freely spin into yarn! Leave some bunched up and get creative with art yarns. Manipulate into shapes for hand painting or crafting.

Experimenting with silk

So far I have only stretched out 2 of the cocoons. It worked easy. Next I want to dye the cocoons, stretch them out into hankies and spin them. If all of the cocoons stretch out as nicely as the "practice" ones, then I imagine it will be fun. I am looking forward to that experiment and what the outcome is going to be.

De-gumed silk cocoons

I've used them before, only I had to de-gum hard cocoons. I thought I'd skip that step. Will be dyeing them for spinning into shiny textured singles to ply with wool
