Silk Hankie or Mawata - White / Ecru Tussah Silk - 1 ounce**

This is beautiful, bleached silk that I use in many of my personal spinning projects. Sheepish Creations is now offering this lovely silk with the discount that comes with buying in bulk!

For those of you who enjoy spinning, here's 100% lovely Silk fiber. This is super soft, lustrous and is expertly prepared--perfect for those who are scared of silk. This is formed by stretching hundreds of very fine layers of silk over a frame. Each hankie contains many layers and weighs about .2 ounces. You will receive 5 hankies weighing approximately 1 ounce.

I spin this fiber myself, and I love the textured, unique yarn that I can achieve. Seriously, this silk make beautifully soft and shiny yarn, making both the process of spinning and the finished yarn a true joy.

This can be easily dyed with acid dyes, fiber reactive dyes, or natural dyes.

Sure to be a pleasure to spin!
