Spun with two plies, this yarn resembles a tiny string of lustrous pearls and looks as lovely on the hank as it does knitted up.
The silkworms that produce the silk are fed only on mulberry leaves, and the resulting silk is some of the finest in the world. The mulberry silk is worsted spun to produce a yarn that is luxuriously soft and smooth but not slippery as many synthetic fibres are. Silk is one of the strongest natural fibres. It is absorbent and feels cool to the touch so is perfect for spring and summer garments and accessories.
Mulberry silk takes up the dye readily to produce intense and lustrous colours.
