The earliest examples of silk fiber date back about 8,500 years. In fact, we still source our silk today from the place where these ancient silk fibers were found, China. With it’s storied history and unparalleled beauty, it’s no wonder silk is a treasured luxury to yarn dyers and appreciators alike! Mulberry Silk is made from the cocoon of the mulberry silk worm. Silk fibres have a triangular, prism-like structure that refracts light, lending a shimmering, glowy appearance to the yarn. Silk is a protein fibre that takes dye brilliantly. Silk radiates with any color you choose to dye!
