Raw Silk Wrapped Stainless Steel is a very special yarn - a fine stainless steel core is wrapped with raw silk thread. It is fine - almost translucent in the light - and oh so fabulous! Don't be fooled by its delicate appearance - she is very strong!
You can use this gorgeous yarn alone or use with another. It has a very elegant sheen and is simply beautiful. Use our Raw Silk Wrapped Stainless Steel to weave, knit, crochet or to craft exquisite jewelry or textiles.

This is really fabulous stuff, with a very fine, lovely, silvery sheen, but without the metallic odor and scratchiness of raw stainless fiber. It took quite a while to arrive from Australia, but the postal delivery is irregular all over, so I won't complain. I can't wait to start working on some kumihimo projects with it!
