Italian Silk Mill End Grab Bag

This product is currently unavailable for purchase.

Add to Wishlist

These ultra-fine, highly twisted 2-ply skeins from Scalamandre have a gorgeous, light sheen, an incredible softness and a strength that's good for both warp and weft. The thread size varies within the lot, with many labeled as 120/2 or 40/44/2; the heaviest is around 60/2.

We are selling these gorgeous skeins in grab bags of 2, 5, 10 or 20 pounds. Let us know which color families you would prefer by putting a note in the special instructions box on the last page of checkout. We will do our best to accommodate your request with the stock that we have on hand. Please note that due to the small thread size and tendency of silk to fly away, the skeins need gentle handling.

Comments about N/A Italian Silk Mill End Grab Bag:

I had no idea that one could even purchase silk thread as fine as my hair and almost impossible to wind into a ball. The colors are gorgeous and the feel is heavenly, but the thread is almost invisible. I don't know now which is the Italian and which the other, but I've spent hours trying to unwind the "heavier" one. Is there a secret to doing that?
