  • 100% Raw Silk with playful, tweedy little specks of colours. This gorgeous silk is very comfortable, elegant and fuss-free with more of cotton-y, rustic feel. 

    Really lovely used on its own, or with 2-3 strands held together, or mixed with another yarn. It's such a delight to work with!

    2 cones will make a large scarf. 4 cones will make a garment or an extremely large shawl. Good as weft & warp yarn for weaving.

    We LOVE this yarn in Gake and the Ombre Tank.

  • Why?

    Do we bother to take so much time and labor... actually weaving or knitting when there are so many good machine woven fabrics or knit wears? They are durable, inexpensive...

    Why?

    Because we must stubbornly believe all the care our actual hands give to each and every process of making a length of fabric creates something more than just a "look."

    It may be subtle, but you know when you wear and touch. You know when that fabric ages with you. You feel the thought of that person, who made it for you.

    We carry “slow” materials, not flashy, not necessary pretty, not cheap, not easy, but those that will give a soul to the fabrics.

    We would like to offer you the best and unique, rarely available. It took us many trips and years to discover & cultivate them. You do not have to do that. They are here.

    I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Who doesn't love a cheeky little freebie now and again?
