Silk hankies are a “mawata” silk that consist of very thin layers of silk squares. We will learn strategies for preparing these hankies for spinning, and then we will spin them in several ways, including chain plying. We will cover strategies for making your hands smooth to minimize snagging of silk on your hands, and various uses of silk hankies and yarns spun from them.
