Pure mulberry silk lace 2ply weight yarn.
Made from 100% mulberry silk, this pure silk 2ply yarn is fine and delicate with a stunning sheen and drape. It is very similar to our Queen Silk Lace, but as it is 2ply it goes even further. It has been hand-dyed in a variety of exclusive semi solid colourways and a couple of speckled colourways. As with all our yarns, I offer a bespoke service whereby I will dye any colour on my website in any base.
This yarn is popular and no two dye lots are ever the same. I try to keep the images on the site current, but your order may differ slightly from the images shown.
A few things to bear in mind when using hand dyed yarn:
- No two skeins are ever the same, even if they have been dyed in the same pot. If consistency is important I strongly recommend you knit with two skeins and alternate every other row, particularly on larger projects.
- 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.
- 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.
