Silk Caps or Bells are made from de-gummed Bombyx silk cocoons. The silk cocoons are stretched into a cap or bell shape over an arched bamboo slat. Ten cocoons are pulled over the frame to make one cap. Each cap weighs 3/4 of an ounce.
Hand-spinners peel a layer off the cap carefully shaping it into a rectangle in preparation for spinning. Felters love the caps as they can be stretched thin to embellish any felt project. Knitters can stretch the caps and knit directly from them. The silk caps take dye beautifully!
