CITRUS - Hand-Dyed Silk Hankies/Mawata - One-of-a-Kind Colorway

Regular price $19.00

My daughter dyed this set using yellow, orange, and lime green after all the colors of citrus fruit.

These silk hankies are ready for you spin or use for felting embellishments. I have a tutorial on my blog for spinning them, and you can also knit directly from them without spinning them if you prefer because silk is so incredibly strong.

The photos show these from both sides. As you can see, the predominant color on one side is green while on the other side it's blue, so if you spin these from one side to the next, you'll get something of a gentle gradient. If you prefer a more homogeneous look to your yarn, I recommend alternating where you take the next hankie from as you go.

Here's my blog post for spinning silk hankies:

You can also knit directly from them without spinning them.

Also, here's a great tutorial on Ashland Bay for using these in nuno felting:

I'm selling these by the ounce, which is the same as 28 grams. Each ounce includes somewhere between 30 and 40 individual hankies.

***IMPORTANT: Please note that these are not silk hankies to put in your pocket or blow your nose with. These are individual silk cocoons that are made to pull apart for spinners.***

As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. If you would like one, just choose it when you check out. I'll include one per order, so if you're ordering more than one art batt, just pick the same one for all of them, and that's the one I'll include.
