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

Price: $49.00

What does 60/2x6 mean? This is a cabled yarn--the '60' indicates a very fine (skinny) yarn; the '/2' means a strand is plied; and the 'x6' means there are 6 strands of the 60/2 gently twisted together (gently enough twisted that you can separate the strands if you wish).

If you're knitting, we suggest lace knitting needles with sharper points. 

Our skeins sizes vary a bit in size, ranging between 90-110grams, with the average skein being 100 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.

Color: Natural  OR…for any of 100+ colors, order this yarn and then go to ‘Dye My Order’ to have your silk dyed for you.  Or shop Treenway Silks’ Color Now! yarns

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