Today all black silk will be 40% off! when you mention this blog and price in the notes section of your order.
The Ebony in Muga Silk is a fine lace wt with about 980yds per 100gm skein. Skein sizes vary (and price too). The price is based on a 100gm skein.
Also on sale at 40% off is the Mulberry Silk at 660yds per 100gm skein. These skeins vary too. I call this colourway “Blackest Silk with a hint of blue” …as this is exactly what the colour looks like…it’s really gorgeous! Every shot I took with my camera is coming out grey so I don’t have a pic of the actual skein just yet (but didn’t want you to have to wait!).
Both silks would be perfect for holiday knitting – either with or without beads. Syvia Harding designed a pattern for the Mulberry Silk which requires 2 skeins. You can find the pattern here http://www.siviaharding.com/patterns/dryad/
