Silk throwing is a process whereby silk which has previously been reeled into skeins is cleaned, twisted and wound onto bobbins. Informally, silk throwing refers the process as a whole: reeling, throwing, and doubling. This vintage book contains a detailed guide to the process, explaining the steps and giving simple instructions for those with a practical interest in the subject. Contents include: "Principles Underlying Silk Throwing: Its Various Processes until Final Product is Obtained", "Counts of Silk Yarn: The Legal; Denier; The Dram System; Other Systems of Deniers, etc.", "Counts of Silk Yarn", "Throwing", "What Silk to Use", "Testing Raw Silk", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of textiles and weaving.
