2/12 Gemstone Silk Yarn

Item: 1581010M Color:101

Halcyon Yarn's Gemstone Silks are simply the highest quality silks for weaving or knitting. Our silks are a great value in several weights and rich gorgeous colors. Luster, color and beauty... like gemstones spun into a perfect silk yarn. As precious and faceted as their namesake minerals Halcyon’s Gemstone 100% silks capture light and add dimension to textiles.

The Gemstone Silk 2/12 is an elegant light weight silk perfect for very fine, lace knitting or for lightweight weaving yardage either for silk garments or weaving custom silk upholstery fabric. A perfect plied silk yarn for combining with heavier yarns to add strength and luster in knit or woven pieces. Gemstone Silk 2/12 is available in economical 610 yard hanks or in convenient 105 yard mini cones.

Made of the finest Chinese silk fibers, spun in Switzerland, and dyed in the United States, these silk yarns exceed the highest standards. Silk has minimal shrinkage and very little elasticity, it is also extremely strong. Whether you are weaving silk yardage or knitting a silk scarf you will be amazed by the elegance or every piece you make from silk. Gemstone skeins are “hank skeins” and will need to be rewound to balls or spools before use.

Using Silk in Knitting: The luster is lovely, but the inelasticity may be a challenge eased by choosing textured stitches, and patterns which feature hems, picot or crocheted edges rather than ribs. Or blend with a soft wool or wool silk combination for ribbings. Be creative and do gauge swatches to find the best match (usually fingering to sport). Avoid highly contoured patterns as detail will tend to disappear.

Using Silk in Weaving: Since silk does not full or fill out, use a denser sett than for wools. Gemstone Silks are wonderful combined with fine wools or blends, we recommend Jaggerspun wools.

Care: We recommend dry cleaning. After testing a swatch, you can try hand washing, and then rolling in a towel and hanging to remove dampness. Do not soak. For strongly contrasting colors we recommend steaming or wet finishing with clear cool water. Detergents may cause darker colors to run.

Douceur et Soie et Amis

Item: 05600100 Color:001 00KidSeta

A luxurious yarn treat! We've combined the best colors of K1C2's line... with the same silk/baby mohair from another distributor - Schulana to give you a really great color selection. Brushed and blended with silk, the look and feel is exquisite. The silk binder glistens, and the baby kid mohair creates a soft, heavenly halo. You can use Douceur et Soie et Amis alone in lace patterns or multi-strand it with other yarns. When multi-stranding, the mohair softens the hand of the fabric without changing the gauge. Try it with our 2/12 Gemstone Silks! Try instead of Kid Silk Haze.

Weavers:

Create beautiful, lightweight scarves and shawls. Used it alone or in combination with other yarns like Halcyon Yarn's own Gemstone Silk (Items 157-159) or Jagger's Zephyr Wool & Silk (Item 27).

• Tabby sett 7-10 epi • Twill 10-14 epi

Knitters & Crocheters:

Lace patterns made with Douceur look and feel wonderfully lightweight and airy. Ask for patterns, from scarves and shawls to sweaters and vests. and don't forget Douceur et Soie et Amis can be multi-stranded with a variety of yarns to add an overall softness. Care: Delicate hand wash or dry clean

• Gauge: 4 - 8 on size 3 - 8


• We source this item from two different importers though the yarn is identical and varies only in color selection. We do this to offer you the best color selection and greatest economy.
