You are looking for a beaming yarn which is absolutely not itchy at all? Even not when you are allergic to about anything? And you are looking for a huge color range? You have found it! Jaipur Silk Fino is a super fine mulberry silk with a perfectly smooth yarn structure and a wonderful shimmer. This drapey yarn brings to light the most complicated patterns and with its perfect climate properties, it is your companion all year round.
Try it for super drapey shawls and scarves!
Note: The super glossy surface and the lack of elasticity of non animal fibers results in a tendency to grow after washing. So please take this into consideration when swatching. It may lengthen by about 10%.
Also: Silk absorbs a lot of dye stuff. Some bleeding of darker colors is unavoidable. Please rinse in vinegar water until clear before mixing with light colors or wearing on a white blouse.
Nature is important to us, therefore Jaipur Silk Fino is dyed with AZO free and Oeko-Tex certified dyes, this means that the dye process is gentle to the environment.
There may be excess dye in some of the colors. We recommend to rinse the yarn in cold water before use; finish with a rinse of water added a little vinegar. Always wash in cold water. To preserve the shiny surface of the mulberry silk, Jaipur Silk Fino must be washed by hand, use a neutral shampoo and finish with a rinse of water added a little vinegar.
