Silk Hankies, or Mawatas as they're known in Japan, are truly magic. You can stretch them out and incorporate them into your felting. You can spin them directly from the hanky. You can dye them into delicious colours. Only a silkworm could spin a cocoon that could be stretched out into this shape. Aren't they amazing? Each package contains 50g of the diaphenous Mawatas. This batch comes to us directly from Japan, and the quality is breathtaking.

Our Master Spinner Kim McKenna shares her technique for thigh-spinning Mawata. See it here.

Please note: If you order 200g or more, we will package it in one bag (rather than multiple 50g bags). If you'd prefer 50g bags, please let us know in the message part of the checkout.

Also available in glorious hand painted colours.
