I have fallen in love with silk and use it quite often in my yarns to provide sheen and interest. I especially have fallen in love with silk wastes.
However, I have found that most of the pulled silk wastes were dirty and dusty. Sometimes they even had small pieces of metal in them. I suspect this fiber is swept up off the production room floor. And I could never find a different color other than reds and blues, which limited my creativity when making yarns and silk papers.
I consulted with one of my silk suppliers and together we developed a superior silk fiber cloud called Soffsilk®. The fiber is clean, extremely soft and it is dyed all sorts of gorgeous colorways. This opened up the heavens of creativity and delight to my eyes.
No longer was I subject to inferior silk wastes that made inferior products.
Give Soffsilk® a try, you will never go back to other pulled silk wastes...I guarantee it.
