Item details

Mawata or Silk Hankies come from a degummed cocoon and then are stretched onto a square frame where it gets its form. It can be spun by stretching the hankie into a big loop and pulling as thin as you want. Incredible for nuno felting, just place them on top of your design before felting to get a cobweb effect. Don't forget to iron your project to maximize the sheen of the silk. Also, it cam be used for knitting without the need of spinning it first. Just stretch and knit it!

All my fiber comes from a smoke-free, pet-free environment.

I used to store my fibers with lavender sachets, but I don't anymore as I have learned that moths hates disturbances and some people are allergic to lavender. Now I dust and clean more frequently and move things around but I still include a lavender sachet with each order, unless someone requests me not to. If you don't want the lavender because you are allergic or for some other reason, let me know on the comment section, or send me a message.

I do my best to get pictures from different angles to capture and show the beauty of the color combination. Remember that your monitor may show colors different than mine. I'm always open for questions.

Uhm, can we just take a second to acknowledge the luscious ness that is silk? There. Aaaahhhhhh. Ok, I’ve spun two of these hankies on a drop spindle and now I need to dye the rest to make something magical. What will I make? I’m not sure. Planning to that level takes all the magic out of it for me. The relevant bits: I got the silk and some BFL in this order. The order shipped really quick, within a day of ordering, and was exactly what I ordered.
