Knitting for Olive Pure Silk

Spun with 100% bourette silk, this fingering weight yarn is perfect for warm weather tops, tanks, cardigans, wraps & scarves.  Bourette is crafted from waste created during silk processing.  It has a pleasing matte, relaxed finish for sophisticated, yet casual knits.  The yarn is also stunning paired with a silk mohair for cold weather knits.

All of the silk in this yarn is made from open cocoons where the silkworms have transformed into moths & fluttered away.

The soothing, modern palette of colorways are incredibly wearable.
