Mawata Silk “Hankies”
Mawata silk hankies for multi media applications. Hand dyed over the course of a day. Mulberry silk created from silkworm cocoons that have been stretched out to become gossamer thin.
A lovely fibre to use in a lot of textile applications such as knitting, spinning, crochet work, incorporating into a weaving project, felting and even onto the canvas for mixed media art and paper making projects. I use these in felting work as they crinkle up nicely when the felting is shrunk.
Hand dyed with quality Australian made dyes.
This unique colourway is “Nebula”; a purple main colourway with subtle pink blended and includes a side injection of a subtle dark blue.
I use latex gloves when handling Mawata as it catches on any rough skin. The latex gloves stop this happening.
