SILK SKEINS ARE HERE! It’s been years since I have dyed 100% silk skeins and I am having so much fun with these! I forgot how different they are from wool! They have ZERO stretch - keep that in mind if you make a garment. The yardage from my supplier says they are +/- 437 yards, but when I measured one skein (using just an Amish swift...nothing 100% accurate), I got +/- 394 yards. I am listing them as around 400 yards.
Silk has a very different reaction to the dye - these were speckled. 🤣 That didn’t happen, so they are more like blended sprinkles.
Color(s): cream, orange, yellow, teal, blue, pink, purple
Fiber(s): 100% tussah silk
Weight: sock/fingering, 2-ply
Length/yardage: +/- 400 yards, 100g
Care instructions: hand wash with delicate detergent (do NOT bleach, bleach destroys silk), lay flat or hang to dry.
