Slubby Eri 'Peace' Silk

 

Eri Silk is one of the 'Peace' silks. A fine, off-white slubby silk, this is one of my favourite weft yarns. It's subtle, and often what lifts a weave is the 'light'. This yarn lightens and brightens without adding sheen or too much white. 

 

It's not a strong yarn, so not suitable for a warp, but if you want something subtle, delicate and beautiful, this is a gorgeous yarn to use. It'd be beautiful as a 2nd strand with another yarn, just to bring that subtle light in. Used with another yarn, it could be knitted, crocheted, but is strong enough as a weft thread in weaving on its own.

 

Silk dyes very well, too.

 

Last photo shows a silk shawl I wove with this yarn, using natural Mulberry Noil silk 7/1, double stranded, as the warp.

Available in 100g skeins or 250g cones.
