4" X 5" cocoon sheets - set of 4
Price: $15.00 set of 4
Individual cocoons are stitched together at our Madagascar project. This cute little 4X5" size is perfect for small projects. And the set of 4 gives you a chance to play with 4 types: Bombyx, Ceranchia Solid, Ceranchia Lacy, and Borocera. All from Madagascar; with the exception of Bombyx, all cocoons are from silkworms indigenous to Madagascar:
- Ceranchia Solid - Spectacular gold colour. These sheets are made with the denser inner layer of the 2-layer Ceranchia cocoon.
- Ceranchia Lacy - These sheets are made from the outer layer of the 2-layer Ceranchia cocoon.
- Bombyx - this domesticated, creamy white silk is available from many parts of the world. Only in Madagascar are they stitched together into these wonderful sheets.
- Borocera - the surface of these cocoons is more matte, and a bit papery-feeling. The colours vary from soft tan to darker tan-brown.
