Color Now! - Jorie II Silk Yarn - Natural Dye 1013 Pewter

Price: $67.25

We love this yarn for knitting AND weaving.  When we had it spun for us again, we had just a bit more twist added so 'splitting your stitches' is unlikely. 

What does 20/2x5 mean? This is a cabled yarn--the '20' indicates a fine (thin) yarn; the '/2' means it's a 2-ply yarn; and the 'x5' means there are 5 strands of the 20/2 twisted together.  So this yarn is about 5 times as thick as our Kiku yarn.

This yarn is "happier" after it has been dyed--the extended time in the heated dye pot makes Jorie II slightly fuller and a little less slippery--espeically noticable if you are knitting with this yarn.  Knitters will find that while the yards/lb would typically make this a worsted weight yarn, Jorie II knits like a DK weight

Color Now! gives you the opportunity to purchase perfectly dyed yarns that ship out immediately—no waiting for your yarn to be dyed especially for you!

Supplies of Color Now! are limited. The color shown here is available, but there may only be 1 or 2 skeins in this color.     

     This Treenway Silks skein is dyed with natural dye extracts derived from plants, roots, barks, berries and insects. 

     The natural dyes used are from responsible, sustainable sources that are organic and fair traded. 

     The dye recipes, formulated exclusively for Treenway Silks, use only safe, non-toxic, earth-friendly mordants and procedures that yield good to excellent wash and light-fastness.
