This is the first time we've been able to offer a 2-Ply 100% Eri Silk, and we're thrilled with the quality! Eri, or Peace Silk as it is sometimes called, has a lofty, cotton-like hand with a gentle silk lustre. Our supplier is using a special machine which creates a handspun look, resulting in the lovely twist and slub variations. Use it in your weaving to create soft, lofty, drapey pieces. Because of the shorter staple length of the Eri fibre, we don't recommend using it for warps.

Skein sizes vary between 90 and 110 grams. Please accept the variation within this range.
