Fibre: 100% Silk
Weight: 2 Ply – 30g Ball – 30g/300m – 1.05oz/329yds
Tension: 36 sts x 52.5 rows = 10cm/4″ – 2mm (0US) needles
A laceweight silk yarn with an elegant sheen. Available in a range of hand dyed subtly variegated colours this yarn is a pleasure to knit, crochet and weave. Animal is a combination of greys and taupe colours with a hint of lilac, fantastic co-ordinating with black.
Project suggestion: only 1 ball of Enchanté is required to knit an average length scarf using a lace pattern. Needle size will vary according to the pattern used – 4mm(6US) to 5mm(8US). This will produce a scarf that feels as light as a feather. For crocheting 2 balls are needed for an average length scarf using a 4mm(GUS) hook.
Our yarn has been lovingly hand dyed by our artisan dyers in small batches to ensure every ball of yarn has layers of colour and beauty. The yarn is unique and individual in nature so there will be variances between batches. We do try to match batches for every order.
Washing Instructions – Gentle hand wash in cold water. Test wash sample.
Knitting/Crocheting: When working with more than 1 ball of the same colour, take yarn from 2 different balls, working 2 rows at a time and carry yarn up the side to work an even coverage.
