Every now and then we make an exception to the "silk only" rule, when we think something is this amazing. This hand-made (from start to finish) yarn comes to us from Nepal. It is very natural, with very little processing. It is the same yarn as #43-001, but it is hand-knotted (or should we say "foot-knotted"; see photo). There is a knot in the yarn approximately every 1.5". Think of it for knitting net bags, or for 3-dimensional work. It has loads of body and dyes beautifully. See #43-003 for the bleached version of this yarn. We are very pleased to be supporting this handwork group in Nepal.
Here we've dyed it naturally using Indigo. You have a choice between Solid Indigo or Variegated Indigo.
