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 true 20/2 Silk:

      Although I love the 20/2 silk (weaving), there is a caveat. I do a loose weave; all knots seem to scream out "broken thread". When I dye the yarns, I make certain that knotted together ends are at either end of the warp. I don't expect the pre-dyed black yarns to be knotted and rarely do I feel one when I warp. However, invariably there is a knot that unties during the weaving process; at that point there is little I can do about it except tie and continue.

        I made a beautiful (if I may say so) winter scarf for my sister. I loved weaving it, but after washing it, while ironing it, I was amazed at how beautiful it finished up! It was hard to part with.

              Great color and stitch definition, using for filet crochet. Yarn is a little splitty when the stitches get too tight. I'm using a 1.5 mm hook.

              Comments about true 20/2 Silk:

              I weave shawls and scarves with a combination of silk, merino wool and other luxury fibers set at 24-28 epi. I finish my weaving in the washing machine, avoiding the wash cycle. They are pressed when almost dry to bring up the shine. A proper finish is important when using this product in hand weaving.
              The biggest drawback to this product is the price. That is why I like to see it on sale once in awhile. I would also love to have more color choices.
