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 lace weight silk yarn with an elegant sheen. Available in a range of hand dyed colours this yarn is a pleasure to knit, crochet and weave. Taipan is a variegated brown and caramel colour.
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. Try our knitted Enchanté Silk Lace Scarf or our beautiful Knitted Summer Shawl. Crocheting patterns using this yarn are Crocheted Lace Silk Scarf, Enchanté Crocheted Scarf, Crocheted Silk Shawl and Crocheted Summer Shawl.
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. Please always purchase enough yarn for your project at the same time.
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.
