100g extravagant Silkyarn
encantada, spanish for "enchanted" is still telling you that this yarn has some special matter....
You will receve two skeins with 50g each. Every skein is overplied in an other direction (one is S/Z the other Z/S plied)
So you should bare some facts in mind while working with this yarn.
Knitted as one thread your stitches, and the whole fabric, will tend to bias. To avoid this you could work with both strands held double.
Or knit 2 or 4 rows with only one strand (or two strands of the same direction) for having a subtle zig-zag effect.
Our tiny pattern "Piastrella" is playing with this effect. You will receive it as printed card coming with your purchase of one skein as long as stock lasts. On request we can send it as an english version (as PDF only)
You can find some pictures in my blog of how this yarn looks like knited in different ways.
To seperate one direction from the other more easily one has been tied together with white threads and the other has blush threads. Just leave one tied to the beginning of the ball.
Atention! Please be careful while winding it to a ball - it is very slippery.
Seda Encantada is a yarn for all who like some challenge or playing around with really special things.
You will receive one skein as shown - on the second picture you can see the two skeins of which your skein will consist.
