Mawata Silk Hankies - 6 ounces:

Mawata is a Japanese word which means “to spread out”. It is a silk cocoon which has been stretched on a frame. The cocoon used for this are typically the ones with holes or misshaped. More than one cocoon is placed on the same frame, so one silk hankie will have a couple of layers.

Using the hankies is very easy and it can help you add a lot of texture and interest to a piece. When needle felting, the wool or alpaca will pull through the silk hankie and lock it in place.

Normally you would be able to get 5 to 6 layers per hankie which you can use separately.

The hankies take dye beautifully. I use Acid Wash dyes but silk dyes also work well.

One layer of hankie can be spun at a time and would be great to spin with wool or alpaca for interest and texture. One layer can also be stretched and knitted directly.

The picture above shows approx one pound of hankies bundled. Your hankies will not be wrapped like the picture, but they will be shipped in a plastic bag.

There are about 3 hankies in an ounce, with DOZENS of layers.

Let me know if you would like MORE or LESS - and I can put up a custom order for you!
