Silk Thrums
$5.00 ($4.55) / hank
$45.00 ($40.91) / any ten hanks

Silk thrums are gorgeous, jewel-like bits of temptation, rich in colour, shiny and sparkly. They are what is left over after beautiful Indian saris are made. They are what cannot be woven on the loom and are cut off. They often have a selvedge of sari fabric at the edge and the remaining warp threads of filament silk in the centre and are twisted by hand into a skein for easy handling.

Use them in felting, silk paper making, doll making, paper making, crafting tassels, spinning into your own yarn, embroidery, and anywhere you want to bestow a touch of strength and class to.
