Carrier Silk Rods are the by product of reeling silk from a silk cocoon. As the silk filament is unraveled from the cocoons into a skein it is carried over a steel rod. Silk builds up on the carrier rod and must be removed from the machinery to work properly. This silk is then slit with a sharp knife and removed. These slit tubes still have the sericin (worm spit) still in it. The rods can be dyed, separated into layers, sprayed with water and ironed flat or degummed for spinning. They have been used in paper making, jewelry, spinning, felting, altered art, textural stitching and silk fusion. The rods vary in shapes and sizes. I have not ironed them or degummed them.

There are six silk rods of the color shown above in a eco friendly, bio-degradable packet. The average size is 3/4 to 1 inch wide by 3 1/2 to 5 inches long. These are full rods, top quality, not scraps.The color in this offering is a dye lot and I can not repeat it exactly so get what you need for your project now.

I try to take accurate pictures of my products but colors may vary slightly monitor to monitor. If you have any questions please convo me - I am here to help.
