From Painters Threads. A Silk Cocoon Sheet is produced on a special machine for the production of mesh fabrics made of silk cocoons. The sheet consists of individual layers, which can be easily pulled apart. They show the typical diamond structure of all silk products and give handmade silk paper a completely new, beautiful structure. The fibre content is higher than that of silk hankies. The fibres can be spun or felted with the needle (hand or machine), which makes the beautiful character of the Painter's Threads colours particularly effective. In wet felting, they can be used together with wool. You can easily use them to make silk paper, either with a medium such as Jo Sonja Textile Medium, or with CMC paste.
