I'm disappointed. Even though this is the first time ever I bought and received silk rods, I have seen many images and videos and had a clear idea of what it should look like. I received a mixed bag of rods - mostly what I would deem old and very soft and more fibre-like rods with a dirty and dusty appearance than the fresher, cleaner and rigid rods which is what I thought was being offered and I would receive. I need this quality specifically for my Nuno felting. Furthermore, I asked the seller to remove the dead bits of bodies - I had to do that myself and gagged all the time :-( And - these rods were covered!!!! with cocoons and obviously dead bodies inside which I won't be using so a lot of my expensive money was thrown away! Not fair when a buyer makes specific requests and it seems to be ignored!

I sold these in their natural state as stated in the listing and shown in the photos. There were not cocoons or bodies to pick out. I believe it is the sericin that you are seeing. Silk Carrier Rods are the by–product of reeling silk from the cocoon. As the silk filament is unraveled from the cocoon into skein form, some of the filaments get wound around the machinery. This silk, with the sericin still in it, is then slit and removed. You must remove the sericin to get white rods. There were not cocoons or bodies to pick out, I went through by hand and made sure of that as you asked. As you can see in the photos of the listing, not all rods are rigid and they are not washed. I would have had to charge more for degumming them and that is not what you asked me to do. You may return them if you would like.

    My passion for fiber began in 1991 when we first got llamas and has grown to the point that I quit my full time job in 2014 and took a part time job. This has allowed me to expand my fiber arts.
