Let me take you on a Magic Carpet Ride! A rainbow of silky colors ready to be transformed into a vibrant one of a kind yarn, or blended into an art batt of your choosing. This colorway is dyed in shades of purple, golds, greens and blues.

Price is for 1 OZ.

I am selling these sheets in one oz increments, so you only have to purchase what you would like. If you are purchasing less than a sheet, you will recieve a portion, and you will receive some of each color.

These dyed silk opener sheets were imported by me, a fair trade item, from the silk district in India. . These sheets are a waste or by product from producing silk, and look similar to a large batt. I think they provide a wonderful opportunity to spin alone, corespin, or to card into your batts, or papermaking, adding texture, softness and sheen. There is a lot of long silk fiber in this, with lots of neps and noils for texture. I am sure having fun playing with this, and have carded it into some batts, spun singles, and plyed it with merino and metallic thread, the possibilities are endless!

The sheets have been carded, and the fiber is somewhat aligned, and could be pulled into a roving. I just pulled the fiber and spun directly from the sheet.

The sheets were very clean when I received them, but I have gone ahead and rinsed them a couple of more times, but to be forewarned, I must advise you that this fiber may bleed slightly.

I have a number of different colorways, and a good quantity of each. Mix and match your purchases, and I will combine the shipping for you. If you require a larger amount, please feel free to contact me.
