Buy Silk Blended Knitting Wool
Silk yarn is the perfect – and some might say, the only - choice for those truly superior knits.
You may be forgiven for thinking that silk yarn is difficult to work with and tricky to maintain. That’s not strictly true, though. Contemporary silk wool yarns have been blended for optimum durability, so you can in fact use these creations to knit clothes and accessories for everyday wear. Brands such as Sublime, Rowan, Scheepjes and Wendy have been working hard to develop long-lasting silk yarns that still maintain that gorgeous finish that we know and love – and, of course, luxury brand Fyberspates is still leading the way in silk blends with its well-established Scrumptious range.
Though we do stock straightforward silk yarns for the purists amongst you, we also provide our customers with silk-based wools that have also been mixed with other fibres to create unique products for a wide range of uses. For example, when silk wool is combined with fellow gentle fibre merino, the result is a soft, smooth fabric that’s perfect for babies and young children. The Sublime Cotton Silk DK, on the other hand, is a great choice if you’re keen to create lighter garments to keep out the breeze during the summer nights.
