Hand Dyed 20/2 Bombyx Silk

This exquisite bombyx silk line has been hand-dyed with Jane Stafford Textiles exclusive Hot Line of over 40 colours. We strive to achieve as solid a colour as possible, however, due to the nature of hand-dying, some variation does occur. If there is a dye lot difference between skeins in your order, we will contact you BEFORE completing your order.

Our hand-dyed 100% 20/2 silk, which is spun in Switzerland, is available in 100 g skeins with 1100 yds/skein. (5000 yds/lb.)

This yarn is extremely soft and, as with all softly spun silk yarns, there are a few things that will make your life easier when using them.

One thing I do with any softly spun yarn is wind two ends together while making my warps. This cuts down on the interlacements going through the lease sticks. You have 2 ends over and 2 ends under rather than 1 and 1….this helps immensely. We also wind our silks onto spools and not into balls because balls of very fine yarn often end up messy. If you do wind it into a ball take your active end from the outside so it doesn’t rub against itself on the inside. Some balls winders let you put a sleeve on, like the inside of a toilet paper roll and then you can wind onto it which helps the centre of the ball stay stable. Hope this is helpful.
