This superfine undyed silk is ready to dye and weave into luscious, ultra-light cloth. Bombyx silk is the cultivated silk from the cocoons of the silk moth Bombyx mori. and this yarn is spun from long lengths of fiber, giving it high luster, strength, and resilience. The natural color is a cream and it takes dye well using a dye like Washfast. The 50/2 silk is supple and strong for its size, making it a great choice for fine weight scarves and clothing.
The cones vary in weight but are typically about 14 oz. The price per cone is calculated based on the price per pound above.
