Sometimes I randomly add black dye to my color ways...mostly because I wear a lot of black and I want to be able to wear what I make. So these are kind of bright and crazy...with black. They pair nicely with Turquoise Lake colorway.

My supply of undyed silk skeins is running low...and I will not be buying more soon (they come from overseas and are more difficult to get - and more expensive - than my other yarn bases). Please keep that in mind and make sure you buy as many skeins as you'll need to complete your project.
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.
