Yarn Made of Soft Silk
Silk has been around for many years. In China the fiberhas been known to be used from about 6000 BC, where as it appeared in Europe in the mid-500s. In the old days, silk was reserved for nobility and other wealthy citizens, but today we can all enjoy the world's most exclusive raw material.
Silk is a 100% natural fiber, which is gathered from the cocoons of the larvae of the insects like mulberry silkworms. Silk fibers are some of the strongest amongst natural fibers. Silk yarn retains heat, absorbs moisture and is a very strong material for knitting and crochet. In fact, silk can absorb 30% moisture with it feeling wet. In addition to these many benefits, silk does not shrink, so it will stay in the shape you made it in to. In short, silk is a beautiful and strong material, which becomes even more stunning when it is dyed using natural colors.
Silk Yarn's Many Good Qualities
Silk yarn is good for the person, who wants to knit or crochet something that looks exclusive. It is difficult to find yarn made of 100% silk, as it is often mixed with alpaca or mohair, which makes the yarn softer and improves the yarn’s ability to retain heat. If you have sensitive skin, silk yarn is a great choice, as it feels extremely soft and smooth and is also completely itch-free. It is, therefore, also great for knitting and crochet projects for children and babies. Yarn made with silk is available in many different colors and can be used for both summer and winter projects.
Silk Yarn Blends for Summer and Winter
Most people use silk yarn, when they are knitting or crocheting clothing for summer, as silk is very nice to wear in warm weather. It is breathable, soft and feels light as a feather. However, silk can also be used for winter knitting or crochet projects, as it is often mixed with materials that are great for winter, such as mohair. Mohair and silk create a magical combination with a luxurious feel.
Even though silk is a durable material, you need to read the washing instructions carefully, as washing it wrong can impact the structure of the yarn.

What our customers say about Silk Yarn
This yarn is absolutely beautiful with a luxurious sheen and drape. Shame it is being discontinued! It would be my go to for garments and shawls due to the heavy drapyness and softness next to skin.
Very fine and light, beautiful texture. I would use needles or hook one size bigger, that makes it easier not to get tangled in the fine fluff.
This is my first Hobbi purchase and I am delighted with it. Ordering was straightforward and I was given great advice from the friendly staff at Hobbi on how much yarn I needed to order for my project. . As a novice knitter good advice is so helpful and encouraging. This yarn is incredibly soft and silky but I have found it easy to work with and the recommended needles are not too small which as a new knitter is a bonus. The colour range is gorgeous but I chose the Copper Brown. It was just as it appeared on the website so no disappointment there. I love the feel and look of yarns as much as the knitting of them! It arrived very quickly so altogether a very good first purchase from Hobbii.
