Kibiso Silk is a raw silk with a lovely crisp feel which adds wonderful texture to a garment or to your textile arts or weaving. It is very sculptural! 

Slow crafted by a small mill in Japan, the raw silk is spun from waste silk that is normally discarded after reeling a silk cocoon. It takes dye very well due to the high sericin content.

Let your imagination run wild with this one!

  • Crisp and chunky - add texture to sculptural garments, textile arts and weavings
  • Weaving - can use for warp or weft
  • Can be dyed.

Kibiso silk is also available in colours and a finer version.
