This silk is a pleasure to knit with and it produces a beautiful result whether you choose to work in garter stitch or more advanced stitches with lace or aran patterns. We suggest needle size 4½ - 5½ mm with a tension of 16 - 17 sts = 10 cm. If you tend to knit looser, then plan on the knitting to grow at first wash. You will not need much yarn for your project as 50 g has the same yardage as 75 - 100 g of cotton or wool at the same tension.

Package: 10 skeins of 50 g
