Silk Throwsters Waste Fibre

Hand Dyed Mulberry Silk Fibre Throwsters Waste. This silk has been de gummed and looks a lot like a mass of threads. It is a by product of the silk industry and is a good source of silk fibre for effect and detailing. You can use it for lots of different projects and it is usually pulled apart and lengthened for spinning and felting works. Throwsters Waste is a by product of the silk cocoon unreeling and spinning process - it is a wonderful textured mass of short and long fibres, both thick and thin! ... It can also be used in felting, again for added texture, and to make silk paper.
Suited to spinning, art batts, textiles, paper making, wet felting, needle felting, mixed media fibre arts and other crafty ideas
