Queen Silk Lace
£18.00 – £22.00
Pure silk lace 3ply yarn in a variety of colours dyed by me. This yarn is perfect for Summer shawls and other lightweight projects, and at 500g/100m one skein is often enough.
Pure mulberry silk lace weight yarn.
Made from mulberry silk, this pure silk 3ply knitting yarn is fine and delicate with a beautiful sheen and drape. Queen Silk Lace has been hand-dyed in a variety of colour mixes and solid colours exclusive to Luxury Yarns. It can be used for a multitude of projects and at 500m per skein, one is usually enough for most projects.
This yarn is extremely 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.
I 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 the same, even if they have been dyed in the same pot. If consistency is important and/or to prevent colour pooling 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.
