Shaman Solid

Shaman Solid

Regular price $16.00 Sale

This raw silk 4-ply yarn is hand-spun and hand-dyed. It is strikingly distinctive and reflects light beautifully. Great for lacy shawls. Work double or triple for a sturdier fabric, or mixed with mohair.

Shaman is has a rustic and unique character. It is spun right from the cocoon. This batch is sock weight. Yes, there are occasional knots and irregularities, but I just knit right over them and find the yarn has enough character that these idiosyncrasies do not detract from the beauty of the knitted fabric... and I like the reminder that it is actually made by human beings!
