100% pure mulberry super spun silk yarn, this silk really is the height of luxury with a glossy lustrous surface and smooth texture. All skeins are naturally dyed using weld, madder, cochineal, logwood, indigo, woad or other locally gathered or garden harvested plants. Use for very fine braids and tassels or hand embroidery/ sewing, 30/2nm - (please be aware this is a very fine light weight embroidery silk - we also stock a thicker one 16/2nm). Wash gently by hand in warm water with soap or detergent. Don't wring out or agitate too much and dry flat. We have multiples of most colours in stock, however if you would like to order more than one of any colour please contact us first to check availability, some dyestuffs are only available in certain seasons so we cannot always dye more to order, although we are always happy to do so if we can. Alum-mordanted white skeins are an option for anyone wanting to do their own dyeing, the mordant will assist the natural dyestuff of your choice in binding to the silk.
