Why Choose Silk Yarn?

Silk is known for its beautiful drape, lustre, and depth of colour and is a very strong and insulating natural fibre. Silk weaving yarns also have excellent dyeing and colour-blocking properties, making them ideal for creating stunning woven fabrics. Silk is known for its luxurious sheen and its ability to take on vibrant colours, allowing the weaver to create intricate designs and patterns. The fibres are also highly durable, allowing for a long-lasting fabric with vivid colours that will not fade over time.

Silk yarn produces garments that are soft to the touch and have a luxurious drape due to their strength, warmth, and daintiness. The silk fibre is exceptionally smooth, which allows the fabric to lengthen when wearing and gives the garment a beautiful drape. Blending silk with other fibres like alpaca, merino, wool, and cotton can create a more stable fabric and help maintain the item's original shape while still keeping the luxurious drape of silk. For example, a silk cotton blend can be used to make warm-weather tops and neckwear which will have a soft feel and luxurious drape.

We have a blog post explaining the different types and styles of silk yarns. You can read the silk yarn blogpost here.

Tips for Buying Silk Yarn

Silk and silk blend yarns are a beautiful choice for weaving projects that provide gorgeous drape and sheen. Here are a few things to look out for if you are buying your silk yarn online.

  1. Consider the fibre content of the yarn: Silk may blended with other fibres to create a more manageable material, so look for a blend that is appropriate for your project.
  2. Look at the yarn weight: Silk weaving yarns or silk knitting yarns typically come in various weights. What yarn weight does your project require?
  3. Check the yardage: In weaving, you will need more yardage than in knitting or crocheting, so make sure the yarn you choose has enough yardage for your project.
  4. Evaluate the sett: The sett is the number of warp threads per inch, and it is important to consider when selecting a silk weaving yarn.
  5. Consider the colour options: Silk yarns often have beautiful and unique colours, so pick a colour that fits your project.
