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 a bit when soaked in warm water. This is a yarn that requires imagination. Think about 3 dimensions when using this yarn - it's thick, has loads of body, and has the most intriguing texture. Make baskets with it. Wall hangings. Sculptural pieces. It's truly magnificent.
