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 as is 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 together with another yarn.

  • Stainless Steel wrapped with Silk
  • Strong and soft
  • Crafted by small mills in Japan using traditional techniques

The Blue sample shown is knitted in shade Ocean using 5.0mm needles and single thread and we love the natural pleats and curves which form in the finished fabric. Find out all the details about this scarf here Tin Roof Scarf.

The charcoal colour is lighter than I expected, it has a more matt finish, when I crocheted with it the stainless steel core didn’t hold it’s shape, as I thought it might.
Next time I should ask for a small sample first.
