Silk "Hankies"

Silk "Hankies"
Similar to the caps or bells (sold above), hankies are made by de-gumming cocoons and stretching them open over a frame to dry.  Each hanky is made of numerous cocoons.  It can be stretched out in a sliver to spin, or stretched very fine for un-spun knitting.  Weights listed are approximate - because of the nature of the hankies, it is not always possible to separate them into exact one ounce increments.

Approximately 1 ounce...$5.95  #119509
Approximately 1/4 pound...$23.75  #119509
