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 Luxury 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. Some of the colours have been hand dyed at source in India, and some have been dyed by me. You can read more about the silk production here.
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. Also, you will see from the image of 2 skeins of 25 Hyacinth – both skeins are exactly the same, they are just wound differently. The skein on the left shows how the yarns are dyed and on the right, and gives a better representation of how they will look when knitted/crocheted.
