The Pure Silk from Knitting for Olive is a (light) fingering weight yarn made from 100 % bourette silk with the Oeko-Tex standard 100 label. Bourette silk, also known as silk noil, is spun from the cocoon fibres mulberry silkworm. This soft, luxurious silk is produced in Italy, following ethic, technical and environmental rules to create a yarn free from harmful materials, which makes this yarn perfect for babies and children.
All patterns for Knitting for Olive use the same weight of yarn (1 strand or held double), so they are easy to substitute. The colour range is absolutely stunning and they combine perfectly.
We recommend hand washing all finished garments and dry flat.
