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.
Please also note that some are priced at £18 instead of £20. This is because the batch of yarn may contain slightly more knots than I am happy with and hence they are being sold at a reduced price. There is nothing else wrong with them.
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.
- 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.
