Margaret - 100% Bombyx Spun Silk Yarn, 60/2X6, fingering/sock weight

What does 60/2x6 mean? This is a cabled yarn--the '60' indicates a very fine (thin) yarn; the '/2' means a strand is plied; and the 'x6' means there are 6 strands of the 60/2 twisted together. 

Color: Natural

Yarn Name Meaning: Pearl (Old English) This yarn was named for my mother who has been extremely supportive.
