This is a very pretty yarn, I spent ages trying to find the right selection of purples to add to this and in the end I dyed some of the fibres myself. It has masses of silk in it along with some lovely soft merino. The silk cocoons reminded me of the Parma Violet sweets that I used to have when I was a child. This yarn was lovely to spin and I enjoyed spinning it on my Ashford Turkish Spindle, I can imagine this yarn being knitted into a cool baby hat, or perhaps being woven into something totally amazing!!

This Yarn will felt, so a cool hand-wash is recommended. Also please note that when wet silk cocoons are very fragile, so gentle handling is recommended so that they are not crushed, once dry they will become strong again.


All my yarns are prepared and spun by me in a smoke and pet free home unless otherwise stated, well maybe that’s a small white lie, because I do keep tropical fish...
