Silk Cocoons!

We've just dyed our first batch of Indonesian silk cocoons. We used a mix of acid dyes to color them. They are so neat... because they are a metallic gold naturally, it shows up through the color giving them an iridescent shimmer.

These make for a really great spin-in for wacky art yarn but would also be wonderful in a variety of other arts including collage!
