A hankie is created by piercing a hole in the Bombyx Silkworm's cocoon, opening it from the hole and then stretching it out over a frame. This creates a square shaped ‘cobweb’ of fiber with a denser frilly edge of fibers. The squares can be easily pulled or teased out from the center to create a roving ready for spinning. They can also be used to add interest in silk paper making, embroidery and felting.
These hankies take dyes BEAUTIFULLY!! Use acid dyes, like Jacquard Acid dyes, to make these truly unique and your project one of a kind.
All of our items come from “the BEST little Wool Shop in TEXAS”, WC Mercantile, located in the heart of the Antique town of Navasota.
HAPPY FIBER FUN!
