Slub Spun Silk 12/2nm

£75.00

A textured and earthy take on classic spun silk, at a nice mid weight. Because of the richly slubby nature of this yarn it is slightly more matte than a conventional spun silk, but still with the gentle sheen we love. I find this to have an almost towel like softness, surprising given the heavy slubbing. This is a beautiful yarn and brilliantly strong, whereas slub yarns can often be fragile. Suitable for warp and weft.
