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 by us 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.
If the colour you want is not in stock please let us know, we are happy to dye to order whenever we can and can dye larger quantities for particular projects. We are also able to dye specialist colours for research, museums or artisan projects.
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.
