Sea Silk. Just the name is enough to conjure up visions of mystery and luxury. And this yarn fully delivers on that promise. It’s spun from 70% silk and 30% โ€œSeacell,โ€ a product made from seaweed. The manufacturer of Seacell claims it has both antimicrobial and skin softening properties and Iโ€™m willing to believe just about anything in regards to this yarn.

It has wonderful drape and sheen. It feels fantastic sliding through your fingers as you knit with it. And, I like it at this dk weight which is versatile and will knit up nicely in a wide range of patterns. Don’t be afraid to swatch with this yarn for patterns written in a sport or a worsted gauge. It seems to have mystical, “your project always comes out perfectly” properties, that defy definition.
