This slippery, shimmery bit of beauty from BC Garn is fine, smooth, and drapey, suitable for all climates and all levels of skin sensitivity. Some silk facts to keep in mind: First, since silk is glossy and without elasticity, it is likely to grow with blocking, lengthening by up to 10 percent. Please keep this in mind while you swatch! Second, since silk absorbs dye so willingly, some bleeding of darker colors is inevitable. Please rinse your finished piece in vinegar water until it is clear before you mix it with light-colored or white garments. Hand wash, and lay flat to dry.
We will be sure to check dyelots while filling your order and will contact you if there are any issues. We apologize for any inconvenience.
