This yarn feels smooth and cool to the touch, a very different experience compared to most handknitting yarns made from wool. Mulberry silk is a very good insulator and quickly absorbs/releases moisture, making it easy to wear from autumn through winter to spring.
Working with silk can seem like an exclusive choice, but since it tends to grow 20% in length and 10% in width after wet blocking, you will need less yarn to complete your project. I recommend making a big swatch before you start your project and let it hang a while to equilibrate.
- Hand wash
- Darker colors may show some bleeding in the first wash
- Dry flat
- Hand dyed in Germany
- Spun in China
- Dyed in skein form (big loops of yarn). Wind it into a ball to start knitting/crocheting/weaving.
- Each hand dyed skein is different. Skeins of a batch are the most similar, so try to get enough for your project or pre-order the amount you need.
- Depending on monitor settings colors may be displayed differently.
