"Kibiso" is the first silk that comes off the cocoons in industrial silk spinning. As the sericin-laden floss is being pulled off the cocoon, it is barely twisted and put on drums. From there it is wound into skeins of amazingly stiff, crunchy yarn. You wouldn't want to wear this yarn next to your skin. But if you're looking for something with tremendous body for 3D or sculptural pieces, this yarn has Attitude! The skeins vary in size, but are generally about 100g.
