This listing is for one skein of 55% silk, 45% cotton yarn that has been reclaimed from a sweater that was purchased at a local and charitable thrift store. This is a fingering weight yarn with about 14 wraps per inch. It looks like there are 15 very small plies in this yarn, making it really strong but the silk makes it very soft and gives it a nice sheen. This yarn would be great for a summer top or shawl. I keep imagining it being knit into a great beach cover up! The washing instructions on the tag of this sweater say to machine wash cold on the gentle cycle and lay flat to dry.

When I was washing this yarn I noticed that a small amount of dye had rinsed into the water. I did an additional cold water rinse on this yarn.

I have tried to accurately represent the color in the pictures but all monitors vary so if you have any questions about the colors, let me know.

The yarn in the pictures might not be the actual skein of yarn you receive but it will be from the same sweater and it will look the same (same color, texture, thickness, etc.)

There are no smokers or animals in my home but this yarn did come from used sweaters.

All yarn is gently washed and hung to dry after it has been unraveled from the sweaters.

I try my best to account for all knots or inconsistencies in the yarn and note them in the listing and on the tags but if I missed something I apologize.

I try to measure the weight and yardage of the yarn as accurately as I can but please keep in mind that these numbers aren’t precise. The yarn is weighed after it has been washed and dries completely.
