This listing is for Hand dyed silk hankies, Atlantis colourway. You will receive 10 grams
The hankies are approximately 10 x 10 inch. These are the best silk hankies I have seen, very high quality! There are too many silk hankies in the 10 Grams to count the exact number.
A hankie is created by piercing a hole in the Silkworm's cocoon, opening it from the hole and then stretching it out over a frame. This creates a square shaped ‘cobweb’ of fibre with a denser frilly edge of fibres. The layers are condensed but can be easily pulled or teased out from the centre to create a roving ready for spinning. They can also be used to add interest in silk paper making, embroidery and felting.
They can be hand spun into beautiful shiny yarns. You can knit or crochet the hankies without spinning them first! You can add them to felt making they blend superb with wool. I have also used them in creative embroidery I have pulled off small pieces and used as a thread in a needle for surface embellishment, it makes your project stand out. A small of silk goes a long way
