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 in that is 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-ness throughout the strand adds to the visual interest of this yarns - at 200 yards, one skein will do a lovely short neck scarf, 2 a lovely wide and long scarf - and 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, 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 10's - and we're testing it for more lacey-type patterns now.
