Here is the second yarn that I would like to introduce you to:
It is 100% silk. It is an absolute luxury yarn. It is smooth and silky (well it is silk). 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 100 grams skeins from the supplier, which is a bonus to me, but it does mean that the color repeats are shorter than in my other skeins. It has 260 yards and would be suitable for a needle size of 3-5US.
I chose this particular yarn because I wanted a luxury yarn that could be made into socks or other high end luxury projects. What is great about this yarn is that it would be a perfect way to spoil that person in your life who is allergic to animal fibers.
It would be ideal for socks, scarves, mitts, or eye pillows.
I listed up 5 skeins of this yarn in my etsy shop. The 4 that are listed are Midnight Rose, Tequila, Mountain Sunset Blaze, Berry Pie, and Sea Turtle. So, let me know what you think! Blog contest details are listed here. Don't forget to check out the Wool Lace from yesterday as well.
Ok, so I wasn't going to blog much else but yarn, but I have to mention this: I got mentioned on Lynne Vogel's blog! She is the author of both of the Twisted Sister's books!
