Silk Boucle is a pure, millspun Mulberry silk yarn. It is ultra soft, undyed, silk-fragrant, and gently lustrous. This Silk is versatile and suitable for hand knitting of elegant, 'the only' all-year-round garments and accessories.
FYI: Silk is one of the greenest fibers in the world because of the specific silk production (silkworms can live and feed only on chemical-free mulberry trees). Silk and human skin have a similar protein composition that makes pure Silk very comfortable to wear next to the skin. - Reference: Color Works (The Crafter's Guide to Color) by Deb Menz.
