I tried small sample of double thread on 0 size knitting needles, and it looks nice to make undergarment soft silk top from this natural cream colored yarn. It would take some time to knit by hand, but it will last long time.
This feels and looks like a really good quality silk and I believe it is going to absorb dye nicely. I look forward to weaving with it! I believe it is strong enough for warp and weft.
This is very nice silk however the skein weights were wildly variable! I weigh before dyeing and not one skein was actually 4.5 oz (100g). I will be around 200 yards short on that one, and for lace projects with a single dye lot, that will be an issue. One was actually more than an ounce short! Of course as always, the staff at Paradise Fibers were extremely helpful when I brought it to their attention. You might want to buy an extra skein if you are doing a big project
This is beautiful silk for Nuno Felting! Enjoy!
I knew silk yarn would be strong. I was hoping it would be softer. It reminds me for all the world of cotton crochet thread for making doilies. When knit up into a lace sampler, it was a bit softer than cotton thread, but not much. It wasn't the nice lace yarn I had hoped for, but I can repurpose it nicely. I like the undyed color.
