Material: 100% Silk Cocoon
Size: 1oz bundle, approx. 10" x 10" each
These silk hankies, or Mawata silk squares, are individual silk cocoons that have been opened and spread onto a square frame. Each bundle contains layers and layers of light-as-air silk fiber panels that are easily peeled away into very thin sheets.
Frabjous Fibers Hand Dyed Silk Hankies are beautifully dyed and ready for a melody of different applications. Each package is an ounce.
Spinning: The easiest way to spin hankies is to do all your pre-drafting before spinning. Separate the hankies into workable layers and stretch a hole in the center. Continue stretching evenly until you have made a large loop in the thickness you desire. Break open the loop. Repeat for all your hankies. Spin!
Felting: Hankies add fabulous sheen and texture to wet-felted items. Lay divided layers on top of wool before felting.
Knitting: Hankies can be knit without being spun!
