This listing is for one hank of luxurious silk boucle yarn - it has fabulous texture and a beautiful sheen. This yarn is not a bright white, it is an ivory off-white color. Use it as is, or dye it to the color of your choice (Jacquard Acid dyes work well). Limited additional quantities are available - each skein is about 185 yards; suggested needle size US 6-7.

In the interest of full disclosure, unlike my recycled yarns, this silk boucle yarn is not a fair trade item. In the past I limited myself to small fair trade organizations, but I wanted to expand my offerings to include some eco-friendly yarns that are not handspun, and whose processing requires machinery typically owned by large factories. I selected this particular Chinese factory because of their progressive attitude towards women in the workplace. Most Chinese factories that I worked with in my prior career as a fashion designer were staffed largely by young Asian women who had no opportunity for career advancement; all management positions were held by men. The factory that produced this boucle yarn has female executives.

Please note, the shipping fees quoted below are for USPS First Class. I can also ship by Priority Mail for a small additional fee (within the US, Priority shipping would cost $4.90 for this item). International buyers: convo me for a shipping quote if your country is not listed below, if you need Priority service, or if you'd like to purchase multiple items.

Stored in my smoke-free, cat-friendly studio.
