Make your own silk mawatas (真綿), also called hankies and caps from silk cocoons to use for quilting, spinning or adding to felt! (Note: Silk hankies and caps are NOT handkerchiefs or caps worn on someone's head)
Some people prefer to make silk caps stretched over a hoop, some prefer hankies stretched over a square. Try both with this kit!
Kit includes -PVC frame and CPVC/ PEX hoop (unlike wood, these can get wet without swelling or splintering!) -80 silk cocoons -mesh bag to hold cocoons while simmering -instructions
The silk hankie and silk cap in the photos were made from 40 cocoons each and are not included in the kit.
This only ships to the U.S.A. because of the whole cocoons. If you would like it with empty cocoons (cut open on one end and the pupas removed), contact me for a custom order.
free shipping with additional items! (shipping to USA only)
