Silk Lap Portions
$0.35 ($0.32) / gram

Silk laps are produced whilst carding the silk fibres to produce silk tops for spinning into yarn. They have a similar staple length to the tops but with much more texture.

The laps come in layered 'blankets' that have been cut to a workable size. Each layer can be separated into fine gossamer layers. These beautiful silk laps are hand dyed in our colour themes and cut into portions.

Each lap is approximately 1.5 metres wide and with the fibres running across the width of the lap. We cut each lap into portions approximately 40cm wide. They are very strong and able to be stretched out easily and of course you can lift the many layers off.

They are ideal for stretching over our flimsies (prefelts) or over our wool tops for wet felting, or for spinning, needlefelting, silk paper making, or in mixed media. You can also use silk laps for dresses, wraps, scarves or to enhance any project.

Hand dyed with love by Tatyana Andrew in colours exclusive to The Thread Studio.
These are priced by weight, at 35 cents per gram, as lap sizes vary.
