At LindeHobby we only have the best of the best, and in the case of silk yarn, DROPS Garnstudio and Du Store Alpakka are of absolute top class. The uniqueness of silk is its very special ability to control temperature, which makes the silk ideal in many different types of knit: both shawls, ponchos, tops, dresses, scarves, caps, baby knit and more, since it has a cooling effect in hot weather and a warming effect in cold weather. Although the silk is the continuous element in all our different types of silk yarns, the types appear very different in appearance, and they are also best suited for different types of knitwear. Common for all types is the high quality which always ensures good results for our customers.
Our Silk is in our various models mixed with mohair, mulberry silk and baby alpaca, and the blends make the yarn have a very special mix of softness and strength. Our most popular silk blends are alpaca and mulberry, but also mohair as they come in many different colours, and you can use them for many different garments. The alpaca is for example one of the world's most exclusive fibers. This is why Alpaca was previously used by the Inca kings from Peru. In addition, the alpaca does not scratch and is three times warmer than normal wool!
In our product overview, you can easily see the recommended needle thicknesses for the different types so you always end up with the product you'd imagined. In addition, there are clear washing and drying instructions for the different types of yarn, which is is very important that you follow. The different silk types do not react the same way when being washed and dried, so it's important to follow the instructions every time.
