This lace weight silk is absolutely dreamy. Smooth and lustrous, this is a yarn you want worked up into something you'll wear right next to your skin. It could be a slinky shell that slips under your jacket or tops of black pants for the evening. Or maybe it's just a little scarf that feels beautiful at your neck and ads a lightweight pop of color. Because Aine is 100% Bombyx silk, it drinks up the dye for rich and luminous colors in both the saturated jewel tones and soft pastels. It's silky, rich, and light - like whipped cream!
Aine's twist gives it more structure than you typically find in silk yarn, so it wears well - good thing too, because you'll want to wear it all the time.
