Hand dyed, very yellow silk cap / hankie. Each cap contains a number of thin layers that is each itself a single silk cocoon.

Silk cap / hankie, hand dyed by Kathi.
0.1 oz / 2 g

Kathi hand dyes each one of these silk caps. They are made from collecting degummed silk worm cocoons, and stretching them, one by one, over a bell-shaped frame. After drying, they retain this shape and are hand-dyed. Each cap contains a number of thin layers that is each itself a single cocoon. Silk has widely been used because of it's durability and shimmery appearance. To spin, you pull one layer off, draft it until the desired thickness, then spin. If you're feeling more adventurous, you may also knit the stretched cap directly without spinning at all.
