Sol is the word for sun. A fiber to enjoy the warm weather!

Unlike other silk yarns, this one is matt, which means it is for everyday comfortable wear. It has an amazing texture, looking rustic but with the feel of the silk. Knit it single, double or even triple and get the most out of it!

In short:

  • 50 gr skeins
  • Weight: lace
  • Metreage: 500 m
  • Composition: 100% bourette silk (recycled)
  • Single spun
  • Needles: if you knit it single use 2 mm needles, if you knit it double use between 3 and 4,5 mm needles, but please make a swatch to see which fabric you like best
  • Non superwash
  • Mulesing free
  • Origin: custom spun at a local mill

 

WARNING: this material is quite delicate, to wind it it is necessary to use a specific winder for wool (swift, umbrella).

Colors change in each lot, and sometimes even in each skein. If you want to avoid problems you should combine skeins as you knit. Oh, and try to buy all the skeins you need for your project in one order, the differences between dyeing lots are usually evident.

Every monitor shows colors in a slightly different way, and even though I take a lot of care when I edit the photos, what you see on screen will never be exactly what you see in the real skein. Also, the photos you see on the page are usually not of the same skeins that I am going to send you, although discreet, there are always some variations.

Wash the finished piece carefully in cold water (NOT WARM!!!) and with the same shampoo you use for your hair. You don't need to use vinegar. In the first washes a little dye can be released, so if you are going to use very contrasting colors it is better to knit a small sample and wash it. This is impossible to avoid, so I will repeat it a thousand times if necessary: wash with cold water and shampoo!

If you want to know a little bit more about washing your woolens see this post.

I ship orders once a week, usually on tuesdays. If you placed an order of yarn ready to ship it will leave my workshop on the next shipping day. If you chose a dyed to order yarn I will have to dye it and will ship in two-four weeks time. If you have both kind of yarns I’ll ship the order when I have dyed the dyed to order skeins.

If you want to know a skein is available or not, open the product page and look under the price. There it says either the amount that is available (that could go out the next shipping day) or if they are available dyed to order (which means that I will dye them once I receive your order). On the shop page you have a button to filter only the yarns that are ready to ship. 

When your yarn is ready to ship you’ll receive a confirmation email.

Once your parcel leaves my door it usually takes from one to three days (usually no more than two) if you live in Spain, Portugal or Andorra. International shipping times and shipping to the islands are harder to predict, but usually don’t take more than one week. 

If you have any doubt or are in a hurry do not hesitate to contact me before placing the order.
