100% SOFT SPUN SILK  

Lotus ICELANDIC SILK
spun in China

natural


This monofilament, soft spun silk yarn is uniform in shape, elastic, shiny, super soft, and is slightly twisted for better pilling resistance. It drapes exceptionally well. All silks are extremely versatile - they are warm in winter and cool in summer. Important: Since Mulberry silk fiber is very elastic, be aware that when it is knitted into a garment, it can lose its shape and stretch out. However, the fabric will come back when blocked. Reference: E. Eskensen, "Silk Knits".

Spun Silk Garment Care: Soak a silk garment in soapy water for about an hour. Do not agitate as this can cause pilling. Before lifting the garment out, drain the water, and very gently squeeze the garment to remove excess water using a towel or a piece of cotton cloth. Dry flat on a towel, pulling the garment into correct shape. Store silk knitwear flat in a storage bags for extra protection against pilling and stretching. Do not hang silk knitwear on hangers. Iron with a damp cloth, press lightly just to steam the garment.
