Hand Acid Dyed Silk Hankies - Mawata – approximately 10 grams 100% Silk. Beautiful rich colours.
This listing is for a stack of approximately 10 grams of silk hankies in the colours shown in the photographs above.
The colours are darker, especially the blue, than the photos - for some reason my camera is struggling with this combination!
Silk hankies are known as Mawata Silk, Mulberry Silk or Bombyx Silk. They are 100% Cultivated Silk and are made by taking the silk worm's cocoon and stretching it out into a square shape while it is still wet.
Silk hankies can be spun into yarn or can add texture and shine to wet and needle felting or embellishing. Also often used in paper making and nuno felting projects.
