LookChina has recently made handknitting yarns available for knitters and
weavers under their Yarn-So-Natural label. Most are available in a beautiful
natural color that is perfect as is or ready to hand-dye. A stellar yarn in the
line is their Tussah Silk/New Zealand Wool blend worsted weight yarn. I love
wool for its bounce and how much easier it is to get a nice, even stitch, but
since I live in Florida, it's just too warm for year-round knitting. The
addition of 50% silk in this yarn not only creates a physically
lighter garment, but also a garment wearable in all but the dog days of summer.
The best of both worlds.
My test swatch had beautifully even tension, thanks to the wool, and a beautiful
drape and sheen, thanks to the silk. The natural color is a beautiful, creamy
ivory. I haven't been tempted to try my hand a dyeing (given the size of my
existing stash, my husband has nightmares that I start hand-dyeing or spinning),
but I think I'll need to start hand-dying as this yarn is one of my new faves.
Hello! I have purchased your Mulberry Silk/NZ wool yarn in
the past directly from you and from Ebay. I just love your yarn, it is so
lovely to knit with.
I am interested in purchasing a few more skeins of yarn to dye. How much is your
yarn per skein?
I am also interested in the price of your Tussah Silk and NZ wool yarns.
