From Habu Textiles: ‘Originally used as an industrial yarn to create oil filters, now they are available as weavers’, knitters’ and artists’ yarn! The core is stainless steel and silk is wrapped around the core. Because of the stainless steel, there is a memory in the yarn. You can create something. Twist it around! It will stay in that shape unless you straighten it out.

It is easiest if you knit this yarn in 2 strands, however a lace stitch in a single strand is beautiful. If you work in 2 strands, you will be a variegation in the fabric. Works fine as a warp yarn for weavers, but it is a bit tricky, so if you are just starting to use this yarn, go as a weft yarn first.“

This yarn is sold in 14g or 28g cones.

Colours 1 and 2 are labelled A-20 and colours 3 and 4 are labelled A-21.
