Thrown silk waste is a by-product of the twisting of filament in the reeled silk industry. There are many different types of thrown silks that have been twisted with low, medium or high twist, depending on their intended use. When things go wrong in the throwing mill and fibres tangle around the machine or are otherwise unable to be used for finished yarns, they become thrown silk waste. It is unlike any other fibre on the market. You may card it before spinning to get a more even appearnce, or just pick up a handful and spin, letting the loose ends stick out and making an eyelash style yarn!
