Silk hankies come from cocoons which have been de-gummed, pierced and stretched layer upon layer over a small 25cm square frame. Each cocoon is as sheer as a cobweb.
You can use several layers together for a more textural effect in felt. Silk hankies are also used handspinning or creating silk paper.
They are easily dyed for great effect in felting.
The price is per 25 grams, which includes approximately 9-10 hankies.
