FlaxenSilk{f4} is a 4 ply fingering weight yarn of 65% mulberry (bombyx mori) silk and 35% bleached linen.

This fingering weight has a looser spin and is softer, shinier, and more plump than her more tightly twisted f2 sister. It is spun in Switzerland using exactly the same fiber as FS{lace} but with twice as many strands. Utter elegance with a boho edge, this yarn has some linen slubs and wires and delivers a shiny, yet rustic finished object. Perfect for summer time knitting, crocheting, or weaving.

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.

Caking your skein is an add-on option.
