Yarn Made of Soft Silk
Silk has been around for many years. In China the fiberhas been known to be used from about 6000 BC, where as it appeared in Europe in the mid-500s. In the old days, silk was reserved for nobility and other wealthy citizens, but today we can all enjoy the world's most exclusive raw material.
Silk is a 100% natural fiber, which is gathered from the cocoons of the larvae of the insects like mulberry silkworms. Silk fibers are some of the strongest amongst natural fibers. Silk yarn retains heat, absorbs moisture and is a very strong material for knitting and crochet. In fact, silk can absorb 30% moisture with it feeling wet. In addition to these many benefits, silk does not shrink, so it will stay in the shape you made it in to. In short, silk is a beautiful and strong material, which becomes even more stunning when it is dyed using natural colors.
Silk Yarn's Many Good Qualities
Silk yarn is good for the person, who wants to knit or crochet something that looks exclusive. It is difficult to find yarn made of 100% silk, as it is often mixed with alpaca or mohair, which makes the yarn softer and improves the yarn’s ability to retain heat. If you have sensitive skin, silk yarn is a great choice, as it feels extremely soft and smooth and is also completely itch-free. It is, therefore, also great for knitting and crochet projects for children and babies. Yarn made with silk is available in many different colors and can be used for both summer and winter projects.
Silk Yarn Blends for Summer and Winter
Most people use silk yarn, when they are knitting or crocheting clothing for summer, as silk is very nice to wear in warm weather. It is breathable, soft and feels light as a feather. However, silk can also be used for winter knitting or crochet projects, as it is often mixed with materials that are great for winter, such as mohair. Mohair and silk create a magical combination with a luxurious feel.
Even though silk is a durable material, you need to read the washing instructions carefully, as washing it wrong can impact the structure of the yarn.

What our customers say about Silk Yarn
These are small skeins. Make sure you account for the yardage. I plan on making a larger scarf/wrap with it. It feels soft and smooth. It is a little thicker yard than I thought it would be and that is a very good thing. I think it is strong enough to have 36-40 inches in width and long enough to drape over both shoulders and have one end waist length in front and back. This will allow the most different ways to wear it.
Just received my first order of this yarn it is so soft and absolutely beautiful I cant wait to make the baby sweater I have planned for this yarn. I am so pleased with the quality of all my purchases so far. Cant wait for this yarn to go on sale again so I can stock up now that I know of the high quality of it.
First time ordering and I’m very satisfied with the order. I ordered Venezia and Istanbul Sunrise and the colors are beautiful. Also the yarn itself is very soft. When working a pattern with this yarn, you could feel it’s luxurious fibers. I would definitely order it again.
This was my first time working with Mohair. I loved how the yarn worked up. So soft and elegant looking. I made a newborn romper and bonnet in a flash. I was surprised this yarn did not tangle. Congratulations on a very nice product I will be purchasing again.
This last lot - I have not got yet.!! But, I already have some of this Kid silk. and its stunning to work with, and looks great with a few beads sprinkled over it. Makes lovely evening wear.
This yarn is exquisite; the 30% silk composition makes it supersoft and very comfortable to knit on its own, double stranded or with another yarn. I hope they extend the colour range
I definitely want to get more of this I have some experimenting with ideas for this yarn. It is so soft, fluffy and luxurious.
Beautiful yarn in a fabulous array of colours. I will be combining it with a fingering yarn to get a dk weigh for a shawl.
I haven't knit with it yet but it arrived promptly and the colour is exactly what I expected; can't wait to knit with it!
The yarn was sooo beautiful. Soft and squishy. I’m using it paired with lace yarn to make a sweater.
