This is the yarn that gets the most attention when seen in person. In a whole display of beautiful, luscious silk yarns, people will zoom in on this one and say, "Wow, what is THIS???" It's 100% Silk. We call it dreadlocks because that's exactly what it looks like. It's thick and glorious. It's quite firm when you get it, but it softens when soaked in warm water. This is a yarn that requires imagination. Make a strong edge on a knitted piece. Weave it in one shot here and there for drama. Make baskets with it. Wall hangings. Scuptural pieces. It's truly magnificent.
