Silk hankies are made from degummed silk cocoons that have been stretched over a frame. The hankies will contain some thick slubby areas, they can be easily removed as you spin or leave them in for texture. Each stack of hankies has a very thin layer of several hankies, to use they must be pulled apart and separated. You then poke a hole in the middle and begin stretchy your hankies into a roving that you can spin. I wind mine into "birds nest' rovings' and separate them with tissue paper.
Silk Hankies produce a loooooong fiber unlike the fibers you get from silk top or rovings'. This fiber is fly away spider web type fiber. You must have patience and lots of lotion on hand when spinning. :)
These are undyed hankies you can spin as they are or dye them and spin them. There are several utube videos on spinning and dyeing silk hankies. If you have never done either you might want to Google this for more information.
This is priced for two ounces of this fabulous fiber....but I am sure you will want more then that.... :)
I will refund any shipping overage.......
