Pure mulberry silk lace weight yarn.
Made from mulberry silk, this pure silk lace weight yarn is fine and delicate with a beautiful sheen and drape. Queen Silk Lace is a 3 ply yarn which has been hand-dyed in a variety of colour mixes and solid colours exclusive to Orchidean Yarns. It can be used for a multitude of projects and at 500m per skein, one is usually enough for a small shawl.
Our silk manufacturers are a small family business that have been producing Indian silk for more than 50 years.
This yarn is extremely popular and no two dye lots are ever the same. I will try to keep the images on the site current, but your order may differ slightly from the images shown.
A couple of things to bear in mind about hand dyed yarn:
- No two skeins are ever the same, even if they have been dyed in the same pot. I recommend you knit with two skeins and alternate every other row for consistency 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.
