30/2 Bombyx Spun Silk


This wonderful undyed 30/2, 100% Bombyx Silk is spun in Switzerland and is available in 100g skeins with 1650 yds/skein (7500 yds/lb).  Create your personal palette with natural or chemical dyes!

This 30/2 silk produces a lusciously soft fabric. We recommend that when winding your warp you wind with 2 ends in your hand. This will reduce the number of interlacements going through your lease sticks and make winding on much easier.

If you can’t buy two skeins, then wind your single skein into two balls. It is also advisable to wind this silk onto spools or if using a ball winder to put a sleeve on the ball winder. Access the yarn from the outside of the ball rather than the inside.

For optimum drape we sett it at 28 epi for Plain Weave and 30 epi for Twill.  Check out Jane’s Master Sett Chart for ideas and setts for combining silk with other fibres.
