DK and heavier weight silk yarns
We have now moved many of our yarns from this site to our beta development site at www.colourmart2.com (you have to register again for that site, sorry)..
These yarns are mill spun and steam set (for a balanced yarn) for us from finer silk. This yarn retains the gorgeous colours and the truly silky feel of the lace weight but gives the extra weight needed for some garments. The 8/28 is simply 4 strands of 2/28NM, whilst the 32/120 is actually 4 strands of 2/120 cobweb weight twisted together then 4 of THOSE strands twisted together again, which gives a wonderful cable texture. Similarly the 20/60 is twisted from 5 plies of a 2/60NM yarn (which we also sell) with two plies of THAT then twisted together, again giving a cabled texture - the 40/120s are actually 4 plies of 5 plies of 2 plies of 1/120s and so on...
plus now and then we add a few more unusual silk yarns... details on their individual listings
