Silk Cocoon Strippings, 100% Bombyx Silk Code: 14209
Natural color, 100% Bombyx Silk, 25 Gram (0.9 oz) package. This fiber is the first silk extruded by the silkworm, and looks like slightly disorganized puffs of carded fiber. It produces a fairly smooth yarn with a matte appearance. There is some sericin in this product. It can be spun as is with a slight teasing or carded before spinning. Use cotton cards (which are finer than wool cards) because they give better results.
