Knitting for Olive Pure Silk
|Availability:||In stock (17)|
This 100% pure raw silk fingering weight base is perfect for lightweight summer garments! It is also sustainable produced - the little butterfly on the label indicates that it is produced from silk fibers collected from cocoons after the chrysalises are allowed to mature into moths and escape.
Silk has extensive heat-regulating qualities and can therefore be used in garments all year round. Silk can absorb up to30% of its weight in moisture while still feeling dry against your skin, so it is especially suitable for summer wear. At the same time, silk, like wool, has insulating properties, retaining heat in cold weather.
Knitting for Olive's spinning mill follows ethical, technical and environmental standards creating yarns free from harmful chemicals.
