Alirio - Singles 100% Bombyx Noil Spun Silk, 10/1, cobweb weight
Silk Noil is also called "bourette." Noil yarn is made from short fibres left behind after making higher quality spun silk. Impurities (crushed pupa) are also in these fibers.
The short fiber length results in less luster than other spun silk yarns. Noil has the strongest silk odor due to impurities in the yarn. The majority of the smell dissipates after washing, but can return again when wet.
Our skeins sizes vary a bit in size, ranging between 75-110grams, with the average skein being 110 grams.
We’ve listed the price for the AVERAGE weight skein. We charge by the gram, so if your skein is a bit lighter, you’ll pay a bit less and if your skein is a bit heavier, you’ll pay a bit more. If you need specific yardage for a project, please let us know in the comments section at check out so we can select the correct skein(s) for you.
Once your skein is pulled and weighed, we will adjust your price and then process your credit card. We will call you if we have any questions.
