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 yarn, and then kettle-dyed it by hand, a few skeins at a time. The yarn is soft yet crisp, with almost a linen-y fabric texture, hence the name. It has a wonderfully soft, not extreme luster, and the color ebbs and flows in strength & depth throughout the skein. With slight thick and thin-ness throught the strand, the visual interest of this yarn is wonderful - and this yarn simply sparkles.
Since everything about this yarn, from the spinning to the skeining to the dying, is hand done, no two skeins are alike - though batches are consistent. Please order enough for your project - we'd hate for you not to have enough. This yarn is a worsted weight when knit, and works well from size 5's to size 8's - and we're testing it for more lacey-type patterns now.
