Contessa Silk Solid

(1 customer review)

I apologise but this yarn is no longer in stock. If you would like me to re-stock a 4ply pure silk please let me know and I will consider it.

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.


Pure mulberry silk yarn.

Contessa is a pure silk yarn in a variety of solid and variegated colour ways. It is listed as a DK, mainly because of how it knits, it’s weight and length per 100g, however, it is actually a 4ply in that it is 4 strands of silk twisted. However, it  knits on anything from a 3.25-4.5mm so depending on the finish you are after it’s really versatile and adapts well to many patterns giving a unique drape and shine that is only achieved with silk. I always recommend knitting a tension square with any of my yarns.

This yarn is extremely popular and no two dyelots are ever the same. I try to keep the images on the site current, but your order may differ slightly to the images shown.
