Pure Mulberry silk single ply yarn.
Luminous is the latest addition to my pure silk collection and I think perhaps my favourite so far. It is a single ply yarn that literally glows and is so unbelievably soft. This yarn is only available in semi-solid tonal shades and I am starting with 9 or 10 colours. If you would like to know when it is available please join the waitlist. This yarn will soon be available in a laceweight.
I can dye all of these colours regularly, but if the colour you want is showing as out of stock, or you want a larger quantity you can order it here and I will dye it for you at no extra cost. There is a minimum of 2 skeins per colourway. Alternatively you can join the waitlist to receive an email when it’s back in stock.
A few things to bear in mind when using hand dyed yarn:
- No two skeins are ever exactly the same, even if they have been dyed in the same pot. If consistency is important and/or to prevent colour pooling or pattern forming, I strongly recommend you knit with two skeins and alternate every other row, particularly on larger projects. If you only have one skein, then you can use both ends at once.
- Whilst every effort has been taken to ensure colour-fastness, there is a chance that some residual dye may remain (this is normal – think jeans…) I suggest hand washing all garments in cool water prior to being worn and keep bright colours separate. I also advise against soaking your finished item as the colours can bleed.
- It is not possible to work directly from a skein/hank. It must be wound into a ball before use, or will get into a terrible tangle. For more information on how to do this there are hundreds of videos on YouTube. Alternatively for a small fee I can do it for you here.
