Zhùmá - Silk-Blend Yarn (55% Bombyx Silk & 45% Ramie), 60/2x2, lace/thread weight

Price: $22.00

Ramie is a bast fibre, similar to linen and hemp. It is in the nettle family and has been touted as the strongest vegetable fibre.

Ramie is durable, lustrous, strong, easily washed and becomes smoother and more pliable after each laundering. Blending ramie with silk brings a touch of body to the silk while softening the ramie. Silk adds a great deal of wrinkle resistance and elasticity to the ramie.

The blend is easier to weave than 100% ramie with the hand of cloth being crisp and soft at the same time. It is perfect for summer garments.

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.
