Hankies are produced after the cocoons have been partially degummed.
The fibers are stretched by hand over a frame forming a 10" square.
Handspinners easily separate the thin layers into a rectangle for spinning.
The hankies take dye beautifully!

What is crimp?
Crimp is the natural waviness or curl of the wool fibers. Each breed grows
fleece with a characteristic crimp pattern.
What does Ready-To-Spin mean?
The fibers have not been combed or carded. But they are fully cleaned
and de-haired, thus Ready-To-Spin.
