Mulberry Silk is also known as cultivated silk and is the best quality silk that you can buy!
It is produced from the silkworms of the Bombyx Mori Moth whose diet consists of Mulberry leaves – hence the name. These silk hankies are very fine layers of silk arranged in a square of approximately 10 x 10 inches which can be separated into finer layers.
Each hanky will draft to approximately 156” (inches) to 256” (inches) in length depending on how thin you draft.
Silk Hankies are great fun to work with!
Dyes easily with acid dyes.
You will love the look and feel of silk both in any spinning and felting projects. Spread some over a luxury fiber when your felting to give your project a wonderful colorful silky look.
Silk hankies are easy to pull apart, you just gently pull them into a long strip and spin them or combine them with your fiber straight onto the wheel. They are super fine and delicate when divided giving a wonderful finish on your projects.
