£18.00£20.00

Pure silk lace weight yarn in a choice of variegated colour ways, hand dyed by me.

Some of these yarns are reduced to £18 because they may contain 3 or 4 knots. They do not all but but I have found that some of do, I felt it better to reduce the price than for you to be unhappy with your yarn.

Description

Pure mulberry silk lace weight yarn.

Made from mulberry silk, this pure silk lace weight yarn is fine and delicate with a beautiful sheen and drape. Queen Silk Lace is a 3 ply yarn which has been hand-dyed in a variety of colour mixes and solid colours exclusive to Orchidean Yarns. It can be used for a multitude of projects and at 500m per skein, one is usually enough for a small shawl.

Our silk manufacturers are a small family business that have been producing Indian silk for more than 50 years.

This yarn is extremely popular and no two dye lots are ever the same. I will try to keep the images on the site current, but your order may differ slightly from the images shown.

A couple of things to bear in mind about hand dyed yarn:

  1. No two skeins are ever the same, even if they have been dyed in the same pot. I recommend you knit with two skeins and alternate every other row for consistency on larger projects.
  2. Whilst every effort has been taken to ensure colour-fastness, there is a chance that some residual dye may remain (this is normal – think jeans…) I suggest hand washing all garments in cool water prior to being worn and keep bright colours separate.

  4. Karen

    I adore this yarn! I am making the crochet Virus shawl and it looks stunning and feels divine. I’m allergic to wool so it’s wonderful to find beautifully dyed luxury yarn.

    I deliberated for a while before buying this yarn, but now I dont know why I waited and just want to buy more and more. It is completely delicious. The colours even better in the ‘flesh’ and it has a beautiful sheen and drape. It was a joy to knit with and the finished shawl is the envy of all my friends. I can’t wait to make another one. Now which colour should I have this time…

    Dear Abby,
    The yarn is super to knit. It does not overtwist – sometimes a problem, and it doesn’t split. Silk doesn’t have “memory” like wool, but neither does it felt, so dropped stitches are easy to pick up, and it slides along the needles easily. In the skein there were a couple of knots, which I untied as we were winding it into balls, so I am confident to start each row without fear of finding a join half way through – so far this is just the one piece – no joins, no trailing ends except the cast on tail. Each section of the skein is wound on to two pieces of kitchen towel as you can see in the pic, but it did take an hour-and-a-half for the two of us. Silk is not hygroscopic, so it does not pick up the dirt while I am working, and I am managing a row in about 5 minutes. I love the relief created in the texture which should remain, even when the work is blocked. All-in-all fanstastic. If anyone else asks you, tell them from me!
    Best wishes, John

    Thank you Skye – that’s always my aim – I think of buying yarn as like buying a present for yourself so I like to make it as nice as possible 🙂 x

    I am fairly new to crochet and was worried about using silk but I didn’t need to – I found it easier than wool – it is so nice to work with and the colours are so vibrant. I have made a shawl and everyone comments on it when I wear it. I have several people asking me to make one for them now!
