Description

TRULY LUXURIOUS PURE MULBERRY SILK LAP, IS MADE FROM VERY THIN LAYERS OF SILK FILAMENTS, PULLED FROM SILK COCOONS, TO GIVE A VERY SOFT WAD OF MATERIAL.

THIS NATURAL WHITE (UNDYED & UNPROCESSED) ROLL IS APPROX 24″ WIDE (IT VARIES SLIGHTLY ALONG THE LENGTH) – APPROX 5-10 mm THICK (AGAIN IT VARIES AS IT IS EASILY PULLED OUT OF SHAPE)

IT CAN BE USED AS A VERY WARM & SOFT WADDING FOR QUILTING & SEWING PROJECTS, THE FIBRES CAN BE TEASED OUT FOR SPINNING, OR USED FOR FELTING, WHERE A PIECE CAN BE USED AS THE BASE FOR A SILK FELTED PICTURE (THE WIDTH CAN BE SPLIT IF REQUIRED) OR CAN BE WET FELTED AROUND A SHAPE).

THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS – THE LAP IS EXPENSIVE, AND THIS IS ALL I HAVE AT THE MOMENT.

I AM SELLING IT IN 12″ x 6″” PIECES (APPROX MEASUREMENTS) AND EACH PIECE WILL BE HAND CUT. If you order more than one square, I will try and cut it in one piece, but due to the variations in thickness, I may not be able to.

Please note this is excellent for wet or dry felting, but the addition of water will cause the piece to shrink, so don’t wash it if you want it to stay the same size!

CAN ALSO BE EASILY DYED, AND PAINTED WITH MULTI COLOURS USING SILK DYES and used as a centrepiece for hand made Greetings Cards
