Mulberry Silk Laps are made during the process of carding the silk fibres to produce silk tops for spinning into thread. They have a lovely texture to them and can be spun like the tops as they have a similar staple length. They can be used in wet felting, paper making and other textile crafts too. They can be split into several fine layers for ease of use.
This piece weighs approximately 50g and is cut into a long strip of about 15 cm wide and 1.5 m long, with the fibres running lengthways.
In a beautiful shimmering white, these laps can be used as they are or can be hand dyed.
Beautiful silk! I'm looking forward to blending it.

We aim to send out orders within 3 days of cleared payment. If for any reason there is a delay we will let you know.
We are very happy to send to overseas and far far away, however, delays happen. Packages need to travel through customs and this can slow down delivery. If you feel your delivery is taking longer than normal please let us know by sending us a 'convo'. We will ask you to check at your local post office/sorting office first.
We all hate waiting for things to arrive, especially when we have a project that we can't wait to get started with - so we do our best to send your items off to you as soon as possible. However, please be aware that a trip through customs can add a few extra weeks to the delivery time especially during the Christmas rush.
Very occasionally a parcel does go astray so my policy in this situation is that if your parcel hasn't arrived 3 weeks after it should have arrived, we will replace it for you. Although 99% of the time they do turn up eventually!
Please be aware that when having an item shipped into your country, Customs may charge you fees (taxes) before they release your package to you. We do not pay these fees.
We do provide a Tracked shipping service but this costs approximately £5.00 more on top of the ordinary shipping cost, so we don't use it as standard. You will find an option for it as you pay for your item.
You can pay for your order with a credit or debit card through Etsy's 'Direct Checkout'
or with Paypal.
Payments can also be made via Paypal with a debit or credit card ( That's if you don't have a Paypal account but still want to make a payment through them.This is called an e-cheque) but please be aware that it can take up to 7 working days for an e-cheque to clear. Orders will be sent out once payment has cleared.
