Want to Learn How to Knit From a Muwata?

First, how many of you know what Muwata is?  Mawata is a Japanese word which, loosely translated, means expanded cocoon. Both silk caps and silk hankies are forms of mawata preparations. The silk cocoons used to make these preparations are those that are not suitable for reeling due to being discolored, having holes in them, or being misshapen.

Yesterday, Yarn Harlot Stephanie Pearl-McPhee wrote a blog post (here) regarding knitting from the muwata. 

As luck would have it, Tempe Yarn is having a class on Saturday, February 5, from 1-2 on knitting with Mawatas.  For more class details click here.  Call now to sign up before the class is full.
