Bombyx silk is the cultivated silk from the cocoons of the silk moth Bombyx mori. It is reeled silk, giving it high luster, strength, and resilience. Treenway takes this beautiful yarn and hand dyes it in a range of rich colors. The Kiku 20/2 silk is supple and easy to weave, making it a great choice for scarves, shawls, and clothing.
The Kiku silk is packaged in reeled hanks. Because of the fineness of the yarn and the slippery nature of silk, we do not wind the hanks into balls before shipping. If you need advice on winding this yarn into balls, please ask for winding tips in the box labeled "shipping instructions" on your checkout screen.
