Undyed yarn - DK - silks

100% tussah silk (DK)

A rich, naturally off-white/grey coloured silk which, despite its colour, takes dyes to great effect. A strong yarn with no elasticity and an interesting slightly 'neppy' texture.

Suggested needle sizes: 3.5mm-4.5mm

Uses: Knitting to most double knitting patterns this yarn may appear uninspiring but produces lovely muted shades when dyed. Whilst not having the lustre of other silks it has a great slubby texture and drapes well. It looks great in evening tops/summerwear, vests, scarves, etc.

Price: £2.50 per 25g (45m) [item code YA078]
