Silk is a fascinating, luxurious fibre. So soft that it has engendered its very own adjective: silky. It is the only protein fibre without scales, so while it retains the strength and warmth of other proteins, it has a highly reflective surface, and very little stretch. These properties give it amazing shine and drape.
This little gem of a yarn is a staggering 100% silk, perfect for precious little projects in jewel tones that positively glow.
A note on colour: Although I do my very best to capture the colours of the yarns accurately, differences in lighting, display settings, and computer screens can affect how you see the colours represented. A good way to double check that you're getting the colour you expect is to visit the yarn's Ravelry page and check out others' pictures of the colourway you're after.
