    Comments about Valley Yarns 60/2 Silk:

    This silk is lovely! If you want to knit with it, it does need to be doubled. I find it is very nice to work with and looks beautiful. Be careful when making a ball to use for doubling it though, it's thin and hard to untangle.

      Comments about Valley Yarns 60/2 Silk:

      For a weaver, this weight of silk has many uses. I am glad that you are not phasing it out all together. I like the colors you have and will continue to buy it. Of course, I prefer full cones at the current price to smaller cones at a higher price.

        Best Uses

        • Satin Scarves

        Comments about Valley Yarns 60/2 Silk:

        Used for long, narrow scarves, 48 epi, in a satin weave. It literally floats on the air and feels wonderfully, well, silky. No other fiber successfully mimics the featherweight or feel. But woven silk fibers move easily if pushed against something, distorting the weave pattern, possibly a drawback for long scarves that may be pressed against a belt buckle or the like. I still think this is the most wonderful fabric I have ever woven.

          Comments about Valley Yarns 60/2 Silk:

          Silk is my favorite fiber and further more fine silk. This 60/2 silk is tightly spun and smooth, but with all fine silks it does pile some when dressing the loom. I work with a 30 dent reed and often double or triple up my threads per dent, causing some piling and twisting of the treads. If you want to work with this fine thread make sure you have a few yards of weaving time under you it isn't a novice thread at this weight.
          I particularly love the variety of colors offered with this silk, customer dying large quantities of fine silk at home can be time consuming. That said if you do choose to dye this silk yourself it takes wonderfully to fiber reactive dyes and also to indigo vat dye.
          And as always all silk has a beautiful drape, sheen, and soft feel after being woven and washed. I'm never disappointed with a weave structure from this fiber!

          Silk Thread

          By Nell

          from Vancouver, BC canada

          About Me Artist

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Dyed Evenly
          • Easy To Fix
          • Nice Texture
          • Soft

          Cons

            Best Uses

              Comments about Valley Yarns 60/2 Silk:

              I bought this yarn to wind onto sewing bobbins and use as embroidery thread in my sewing machine. It stitches beautifully. I use free motion embroidery techniques and no snags or thread breakage. I am using the yarn both as the top and bottom thread. The finished effect of the embroidery is soft and luxurious. I have used it as a white thread and dyed it for specific colours, it dyes so well!

              Service and delivery comments:

              It arrived really quickly to Canada. I needed questions answered as to whether it was the right thread for my project the customer service got straight back to me to answer all my questions.

                I like to knit very loosely with the 60/2 silk to create a shape for nuno felting. I also like to sew with it--as bobbin thread.
