This beautiful blended yarn is made from 20% fine silk and 80% pure cotton. The silk and cotton are spun together before the yarn is dyed. As the cotton and silk pick up the dye in different ways, the resulting effect is a gorgeous melange/speckled look. Why not use it in a "fade" accessory or garment pattern which are currently very popular.
Versatile enough to crochet and knit.
