Mulberry Silk Caps 100gm
Each layer of the cap is made from a mulberry silk cocoon stretched over a board shaped like a bell. You can use mawata caps in the same way that you use silk hankies. Just split the cap into thin layers and stretch each layer into a roving. You can then use the roving to spin a lustrous yarn or even knit directly from it. You can also use mawata caps in silk fusion or combine them with felt. Like all silk, mawata caps take dye very well.
