Inspired by 'Five Minutes with a Pocket Hanky' and Mullica's Impromptu series, I've started taking a pocket hanky out with me 😉  I also checked out the Fulves hanky book.

Is there any other good source (pref DVD) for hanky (not silk) material?  Or have I already pretty much exhausted what can be done with a hanky alone (without other items)?

I could not believe 'Five Minutes with a Pocket Hanky'  It is brilliant.  Not sure why I ever bothered to learn magic.  Seriously it really is a work of art.

A suggestion.  Consider doing the burnt-and-restored hanky if you want to extend a routine.  I used to do that all the time at walkaround gigs and it kills.  I also did the bit where you have two spectators hold the hanky out flat and you run the flame of a lighter over the surface and the hanky doesn't burn.  For those that don't know it, you simply have them stretch the hanky out like a table and approach the edge with a lit Bic Lighter or similar.  Run the lighter under the hanky, the metal top of the lighter rubbing on the fabric, the flame stays lit on top.  You can run it all over the hanky and so long as you keep moving, it doesn't burn.  Most audiences have no idea this is possible and it gets their attention.  During this you have all the time in the world to steal your TT with an extra piece of hanky ready to do the burn-and-restore bit.

Just a thought.

I always have a hanky ready to be cut and restored, The Phoa Yan Tiong way.

It's a great little illusion, worth the trouble of destroying a piece of cotton everytime imo !

Glad you brought up that trick.  It kills!  They swear you cut it, because you did!  Then you fry their minds.

Exactly !

Sometimes if I want to go further, I perform the Tamariz change (sorry I dont remember the exact name) for a brand new hanky, and continue with whatever I decided to.

I think Gardner's Encyclopedia of Impromptu Magic has some handkerchief material.
