I have dyed 5 carrier rods in various shades of yellow using procion dyes. There are also a couple of red spots on some of the rods.The colours are very vibrant and the rods have a beautiful sheen to them.

Each rod is about 5-6 inches long (12 -15cm) and 1/2 inch (1cm) wide when tightly rolled to 1 inch (2.5cm) when flat. These measurements are approximate, as each rod is different.

These silk carrier rods are a by-product of silk production. The silk fibres from a cocoon are wound over a rod while being spun, and as they contain sericin (a glue like substance) they form a hard covering on the rod which has to be cut away. This is the silk carrier rod. They can be used as they are, to add a structural element to mixed media or textile art, or rolled between the hands to soften them and separated into several layers. These layers can be stretched to produce a lacy texture, and twisted into a rough yarn, or just laid onto a background and stitched together.

Just writing this description makes me want to start using them!!
