Silk hankies are cocoons that have been stretched over a square wooden frame.  About a dozen cocoons are stretched in each hankie.  Peel off one layer, and either start spinning from an edge, or open it up from the center and attenuate into a large loop.  You can even knit with the stretched silk without adding twist!
