FlaxenSilk{c} is a cobweb weight yarn of 65% mulberry (bombyx mori) silk and 35% linen spun in the mountains of Switzerland by Camenzind, who has been spinning silk since the mid 1800s.

This one is light as air and oh, so elegant. If you’re looking for a toothy, gossamer lace that blocks to crisp and shiny perfection, FS{c} is for you.

Hand washing is recommended. The dyes I use are low-impact Procion MX fiber reactive dyes, the same that I use for all dyedianadye garments and accessories. I use a cold water process, randomly distributing color, often in multiple baths to produce a glazed and layered effect. The result is no regular striping or predictable pooling. In addition, both the silk and linen fibers take up the dye. You will not have white linen strings or haze in this yarn.

All skeins within a lot or between lots will vary from one other. If your garment requires more than a single skein, consider alternating between skeins.

Base yarn spun in Switzerland and dyed by me in my Atlanta studio.

Caking your skein is an add-on option.
