100% Mulberry Silk - Skvader - Super Fine Weight - ~450m/100g hank - Callais Twilight
This color was inspired by a picture of a sunset over the Mediterranean. I just wanted to watch the sun set over the sea and dive into the turquoise, purple, blue and grey tones. This color scheme is hand-dyed onto our 6-ply, 100% spun mulberry silk. The colors are rich, vibrant, and luxurious. Our Skvader yarn is toothier than regular silk and has the look and feel of wool, without the itch.
This yarn is the absolute best for socks, shawls, light garments, and baby items.
Many thanks to Catharine Tipton, who named this yarn.
We name all our silk yarn bases after jackalopes from around the world. The Skvader hails from Sweden and appears as a rabbit or hare with wings. They typically do not have horns or antlers, which is different than most jackalope species. The Skvader are a gentler, more docile creature than their other jackalope cousins. They prefer beer over hard liquor, and can be kept as pets (if you are lucky enough to find one). Once tamed, they are devoted to their adoptive families. However, if they are mistreated, watch out! They have been known to gnaw through concrete and steel, so fingers and furniture could be fair game.
This is a limited run color scheme, so hurry before they hop away!
