Silk Stainless Steel Lace Yarn - Habu Textiles
A beautiful and unusual yarn crafted by Japan artisans. The stainless steel core is wrapped with a fine silk to give us a lace yarn which has a memory from the stainless steel! You can scrunch your finished fabric, twist it, scrunch it and it will stay in shape until you straighten it. Use it to give a gentle crinkly effect or a three dimensional finish to your handmade creation.
Available in stunning colours our Silk Stainless Steel yarn has a very elegant sheen and lustre. There is a gentle softness too – surprisingly there is no stiffness from the stainless steel.
Use Habu Silk Stainless Steel yarn to create a scarf, shawl, jacket jewelry and textile art. 1 cone will make a large scarf. Or use it to add some structure to another yarn.

Just put it in as a warp. Going to use silk as a weft. Love the colour and how it matches the silk.
I love the silk steel yarn. Wow. Can’t wait to work with it.
Yay now I can finish my project. Thanks. Debbie
Perfect as always. Thank you. So much!
