Once in a while a unique yarn passes through my fingers and I just have to work with it immediately, this silk yarn is one of those special yarns. The saturated colors, gentle hand, and resilience of the fiber itself made me think of a little topper to wear for a splash of color in the Spring and touch of warmth under a wool coat in the winter. the piece is seasonless! The exceptionally soft hand of this fabric makes it easy to wear as a poncho or cowl. How will you envelope yourself in this luxurious fiber?
