It sheds, its twist is uneven, it doesn't have much "give"; every skein is different and there are no dyelots available. And those are just a few of its strong points. On the other hand, it is 100% silk, its colors are positively and amazingly vibrant, and every skein is different. This yarn is not for the faint of heart or the fussy fiber worker.

In addition it should be wound in to balls very carefully to ensure that the delicate fibers stay woven in. Ah, but the artist, the adventurous knitter/weaver/crocheter - the experimenter, will be richly rewarded with this tempermental and ultimately satisfying yarn, making truly unique items that will garner touches and compliments. Your purchase of this yarn helps to support women's development groups in Nepal who produce unique fiber arts products in their spare time in their own homes. This work provides additional income to support their families and improve their lives.
