KaPow Colour

A jolt of colour in the form of hand dyed silk hankies. These are not the kind of hankie carried by grandmothers and used to wipe noses and dab at tears. These hankies are a form of silk preparation where silk cocoons are stretched over frames, layer upon layer.

I bought them at a local fibre festival over a year ago. Spinning silk hankies is a new experience for me.

I think I like it.

Oh man, I love the colors! I'll have to look that up and 'see' how its done. I think I saw somebody on youtube once, spinning silk like you are.
