    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.

      Comments about Valley Yarns 20/2 Silk:

      It weaves up into the beautiful scarves and shawls. I use it with my fan reeds, and it glides through the narrowing dents easily. It wet finishes wonderfully. And it's not too pricey.

        It is hard to find good silk weaving yarn on cones in a good range of colors. That keeps me coming back for more.

          Comments about Valley Yarns 20/2 Silk:

          I use this to machine-knit scarfs, and been doing so for many years. Only reason I didn't give it a 5-star rating is that I've recently been experiencing knots, where the manufacturer had to tie two ends together. And of course that's not something you notice until it either comes undone or you discover an irregularity in the middle of the piece which diminishes its overall smoothness.

            I have woven scarves and shawls as well as yardage using this product and it always pleases me. It is easy to use and does not tangle; it also blends well with Merino and dyes consistently.

                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.
