Peau De Soie Hand Dyed Silk Yarn: a fab exclusive!
$16.80 after fab discounts (Reg $21/Fab Discounts apply automatically when you checkout)
Peau de Soie silk yarn is a crisp, hand dyed silk yarn that any fiber lover will go gaga over. We've imported a beautiful silk kettle-dyed yarn unlike most high-end silk yarns—it's a little funkier, a little more rock and roll. Peau de Soie silk yarn is soft yet crisp, with an almost linen-y feel. It has a wonderfully soft, not extreme luster, and the color depth is amazing.
We call this a worsted silk roving because it has no twist, is not plied, and the slight thick and thin throughout the strand adds to the visual interest. At approx 180-200 yards, one skein will do a lovely short neck scarf, 2 a lovely wide and long scarf. Also, if you work it on large needles in a lace pattern, you won't be disappointed!
Everything about this yarn, from the spinning to the skeining to the dying, is hand done so no two skeins are alike—though batches are consistent. Please order enough for your project—we'd hate for you not to have enough and supplies are limited on this custom yarn! This yarn is a worsted weight when knit, and works well from size 5's to size 10's—and we're testing it for more lacey-type patterns now.
