Schachenmayr Select Silk Wool

Schachenmayr Select Silk Wool is an elegant yarn with high-quality silk for delightful projects, both classic and trendy. The high percentage of silk combined with fine virgin wool, results in a yarn with an elegant sheen and the highest wearing comfort. An innovative chain-like structure gives the yarn high volume and a slight stretch which adds to garment comfort. Made in Italy.

Note: the ball band may reference "SMC" - this is the same company as Schachenmayr.

This yarn is available online only. Local customers can choose the In-Store Pickup option when placing their order online.

      Comments about SMC Select Silk Wool:

      This was my second purchase of this yarn. I bought it the first time as it was the recommended yarn on a sweater I saw in a popular knitting magazine. I loved working with it so much that I designed this sweater up myself so I could use this same yarn. It knits up so well, it is easy to fix a mistake or dropped stitch or remove rows if need be. It is soft and comfortable to wear. I plan on making another one up once I finish this second one. I highly recommend this yarn.

        Comments about SMC Select Silk Wool:

        I am half way done with a short cable cardigan. This yarn is so easy to work with. I plan to get more in other colors for similar projects. I mainly knit tiny doll sweaters but fell in love with the sweater on the cover of the recent "Vogue Knitting" magazine and it recommended this yarn. I will definitely be buying more.

          Comments about SMC Select Silk Wool:

          I was knitting a hat in the dark charcoal color (#07102 Lot #2983) and the yarn started turning my fingers black.
          The yarn feels soft in the ball, but begins to feel coarse after knitted.
          Not at all happy with this yarn.

                Comments about SMC Select Silk Wool:

                I made a blanket with this yarn -- which was an expensive proposition, but turned out beautifully. This yarn is gorgeous, with beautiful colours and a nice smooth finish. Very soft and springy. I was worried the vibrant colours might bleed, but they didn't -- at least when I soaked my blanket squares in wool wash and cold water to block them. Highly recommend.
