Pure mulberry silk yarn.
Contessa is a pure silk yarn for knitting and crochet 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 together. 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. Also, please ensure that you buy enough to complete your project as it sells fast.
