Here is the fourth yarn that I would like to introduce you to:
It is 100% silk boucle. It is an absolute luxury yarn. It is slubby, textured and silky. It takes the dyes a little differently than wool or alpaca, but I was expecting that. Silk is special because it takes a little longer to take up the dye, but when it does it creates something that is truly brilliant. It comes in 4 oz and has 330 yards and would be suitable for a needle size of 3-5US.
I chose this particular yarn because I thought that it had an interesting and unique texture that I haven't seen elsewhere in a silk. I have seen a similar yarn made out of rayon by Fiesta that I have enjoyed knitting with before.
It would be ideal for a lacy scarf. If I end up carrying this yarn I would probably include a pattern for a scarf in garter, knit lengthwise.
I listed up 4 skeins of this yarn in my etsy shop. The 4 that are listed are Chocolate Cherry, Monet, Mountain Sunset, and Smokey Rose. So, let me know what you think! Blog contest details are listed here. Don't forget to check out the Wool Lace, Silk Sport, and Wool/Silk Single.
