This is a real rarity among yarns, exclusively for connoisseurs. Instead of the more familiar cool, shiny silk, Butterfy/Silk Moth uses raw silk as a base material which results in a yarn with a rustic surface that is exceptionally strong, and yet still light and soft. The knitwear it makes can be ideal attire for the whole year – in winter it warms with its sumptuous touch, while in summer it feels as if you were wearing nothing as it forms such light, delicate layers. It absorbs the moisture from your skin, regulates heat, and can even be worn by people with the most sensitive skins.
