Wild natural silk results from a long tradition in China, dating back thousands of years. The fibres are almost white and especially even, so it is the most valuable of silks.Turned into 3-mm. cord and sewn by hand, Hofert’s wild natural silk feels very smooth in contact with the skin. The protein fibers are so much like human skin and can absorb up to 50% of water without feeling wet, so they are known as “second skin”. Ideal for making casual items like braids, embroidery patterns and bracelets. Available in 20 colours. Length: 10 metres.
