Natural Dyes - Earthues Silkzorb
Earthues Silkzorb is a silk degummer, a liquid enzyme used to remove Sericin in silk fibers prior to dyeing. Sericin is a protein created by the silkworm in the production of its silk. The silk fiber is produced by the silkworm in the making of its cocoon. If you do not remove the sericin it is difficult to dye silk. Sericin makes the silk yarn very stiff, when you remove the sericin the yarn becomes much softer.
- Use with a small amount of Soda Ash and Scour
