Hand Spun Mending Silk (approx 10yds)
These mini skeins of hand spun silk are spun in house, from mulberry silk (unless otherwise noted). You’ll find about 10 yds in each skein. Hand spun silk is incredibly soft, strong and compressible (i.e. not bulky) which makes it ideal for mending. Silk is such a wondrous material and it is perfect for visible mending of knit or woven fabrics. Thread is 2 ply and roughly 18 wpi.
Once applied, silk mends should be cared for similarly to wool; silk shouldn't shrink, but we recommend cold washing silk mended clothes to preserve color and texture. All silks are washed thoroughly before shipping.
Silks are shipped directly from our Seattle workshop in packaging that is minimal and giftable quality.
