Happy Wednesday!!! It's time for our giveaways for this month and we have some great prizes for you! This month we have 4 total giveaways and 2 of them are Silks! How lucky are we to be able to give these great fibers away!
Plum Crazy sent in a 2 oz sample of Natural Golden Yellow Eri Silk, (you'll also get a mini sample in your Sampler) & Gloria Patres Pirate Stitch Marker and Button Set. Eri Silk, also known as Endi or Errandi, Eri is a multivoltine silk spun from open-ended cocoons, unlike other varieties of silk. Eri silk is the product of the domesticated silkworm, Philosamia ricini that feeds mainly on castor leaves. Eri silk is processed without killing the silkworm. Typically, silk cocoons are boiled with the worm inside in order to produce one continuous silk filament from the cocoon. A continuous filament produces fabric that is both shiny and smooth. Interestingly, the Eri silkworm spins short segments of a filament and creates a cocoon that is open at one end – enabling the moth to emerge. Often referred to as the “peace silk,” Eri is very popular among vegans and Buddhists. I love this buttery yellow silk!

We also have a 1 ounce sample of Recycled Mulberry Silk from Naturally Ewe & Gloria Patres Stitch & Buttons Set. I have been thinking about dyeing some of this since I first saw it :) Mulberry Silk is also known as Bombyx silk or Cultivated Silk. The best quality silk you can buy. It is produced from the silk worms of the Bombyx Mori Moth. Their diet consists of Mulberry leaves. Mulberry silk is produced in a controlled warm environment.
