This offering is for a 29 gram section of silk lap measuring approximately 6"x26".
These hand dyed grade A Mulberry silk lap pieces are cut from a large blanket of soft, lustrous, feather light layered silk fiber. They can be stretched out until they are gossamer thin and used as a layer in felting, paper making or drafted out for spinning a textured yarn.
Less than perfectly shaped cocoons are used to make 'laps.' The degummed cocoons are carded on a large carding machine to make large 'batts' approximately 56" x 60" (approx 700g).
Mulberry Silk is also known as Bombyx silk or Cultivated Silk. The best quality silk you can buy. It is produced from the silk worms of the Bombyx Mori Moth. Their diet consists of Mulberry leaves. Mulberry silk is produced in a controlled warm environment.
