    Great for laceweight projects

    I have used this for knitting fine lace projects, single strand. The yarn is comparable in weight to size 30 cotton crochet thread. Knits up and blocks beautifully!

    i weave with this silk, usually inkle bands for trim. Silk is forgiving about humidity, gives a clean shed easily, and looks nice. There is some tendency for pilling, which can interfer with advancing the warp. I would like a bright yellow and a yellowgold, as the grapefruit is way to light for me.

    Weaving Silk

        Comments about Valley Yarns 20/2 Silk:

        I love to weave with silk. I dye this fiber and then warp my loom with it. It is very strong and I do not have problems with the yarns breaking.
        It has a beautiful sheen and drape.
        Can't get any better than Webs 20/2 silk.

            I've been using this silk to make scarves for over ten years, and it is very consistent in its quality. The dye lots are not always consistent, tho, so be sure you have enough of one lot to complete whatever you're making--a good rule to follow with anything fiber-related!

              The silk weaves well with Jagger Spun 50/50 silk/wool, does not tangle or twist when under tension. Makes great scarves.

                        I love to weave and love to use the silk. It is by far my favorite to work with along with Jaggerspun Zephyr that Webs carries. I hand painted the white/undyed silk and enjoyed doing it and loved the outcome. You can't go wrong with this lovely yarn.
