This listing is for a hank of Mulberry Silk String.
The metreage varies along with the thickness and no two hanks are exactly alike. In this larger hank the string is the finest that we have and roughly equivalent to 2 ply in thickness.
This a very unusual product,. The string is made by hand ( not by us) and still contains Serecin from the Silkworm. It is quite stiff and textural because of the Serecin, which is very difficult to remove except by repeated boiling. ( but you wouldn't want to remove it anyway)
Use for weaving, 3D Sculptural Forms, Mixed Media Knitting, etc. etc.
The Silk String is Ecru in colour. It can be dyed with both Procion MX dyes and Acid Dyes and also painted.
if you would like us to wind this yarn onto a cone for you please select the 'On Cone' option from the drop down menu (there is a £5.00 charge for this service).

Prices are changing for Royal Mail parcel products to the USA from 1 July 2020
As a result of exceptional cost increases outside of our control, we are reluctantly introducing pricing changes for parcels being sent to the USA from 1 July. We are limiting the increase to only recover the costs we are experiencing.
These costs are a direct result of:
An increase of more than 100% in the fees the US Postal Service (USPS) charges for the ‘last mile’ delivery of international mail
Securing air freight at inflated market costs due to a 95% reduction in air passenger flights globally following the outbreak of Covid-19.
