The uneven spin on this yarn is the whole message. It's a super-lustrous silk 2-Ply, where the plies have been spun unevenly. When the plies are twisted together, the unevenness is exaggerated, giving the yarn a unique, slightly rustic appearance. "Luxuriously rustic"! We don't recommend a yarn that is partially loosely spun for use in the warp, but fill your weft with it for a unique, unexpected texture. And the lustre will take your breath away. For knitting, it's a fine yarn for those cobweb projects. Or consider running it alongside another yarn to lend character and dimension.
