Recycled Multicolor Sari Silk Yarn

Colors are beautiful, have bought this yarn before a few years ago. These skeins are are spun so tight yarn does kink often and needs to be straightened out every few minutes. Also, it goes from as thick as a hair to bigger. The very thin scares me a little as Im making infinity scarves. It would be best if it were somewhat more consistent. I know silk is very strong and in this case it needs to be. I need to rethink how I'll use the last skein. Im sure tho I'll order more but at the creator end it could be mentioned I use size 11-15 needles mostly as I like the fabric to show, the colors and the textures but extensive feet of the extrememly thin becomes a factor for strength and consistency of my project. Thiscker obviously shows the fabric off better. Everyone loves the uniqueness and give back factor. Me also! thankslv
