Silk Tweed

Silk Tweed is an excellent choice for your summer knits. Not only does it have a soft feel, but its tweed texture adds depth and character to any project. Crafted from 100% Silk Noil, also known as 'raw silk', this yarn is made from the residual fibers found within the cocoon. When spun, these small broken fibers create an interesting nubby matte texture that gives a tweedy aspect, while maintaining a softness akin to cotton. Silk also has lots of amazing properties: it is highly breathable and warm, it keeps moisture away from the body, and it is comfortable to wear against the skin.
