Silk Lace Knitting Projects

This yarn is ideal for adding to wool or alpaca yarns for knitting, machine knitting, weaving, or crocheting. It adds a silky sheen to your woolen project and keeps the wool from stretching.

Silk comes in fine filaments that are extremely strong and stretch-resistant. When plied with alpaca or wool yarns, it stabilizes it and prevents stretching.

I ply silk with my handspun lace-weight Rambouillet yarn for the lace garments. I incorporate Shetland gossamer patterns into the garments I produce.

When adding silk to wool yarns, you can twist them on a spinning wheel or simply knit two yarns together as two parallel strands without twisting. Both methods produce excellent results.

This particular order ships from China. Each color lot is dyed individually. Please purchase enough yarn from the same lot to avoid color variations.
