Silk "hankies" are de-gummed silk cocoons from the Bombyx Mori silkworm. After de-gumming the cocoons are pulled into squares approximately 10" x 10". There are many ways to use silk "hankies". My favorite way is to make un-spun yarn. Un-spun yarn from a silk "hankie" is easy to make and use. No spinning experience is necessary to make un-spun silk "hankie" yarn. The easy instructions for making un-spun silk "hankie" yarn is on the Silk "Hankie"
page.. My silk "hankies" are approximately 1/2 ounce each.
