Jaipur Silk Fino is an elegant 100% mulberry silk lace weight yarn which glistens and shines. Perfect for fine knitting, lace, weaving and machine knitting. The silk feels cool to wear in the summer and gives warmth in the winter. Protecting nature is important all of us which is why Jaipur Silk Fino is dyed with AZO free and Oeko-Tex certified dyes, this means that the dye process is gentle to the environment.
There may be excess dye in some of the colors. We recommend to rinse the yarn in cold water before use; finish with a rinse of water added a little vinegar. Always wash in cold water. To preserve the shiny surface of the mulberry silk, Jaipur Silk Fino must be washed by hand, use a neutral shampoo and finish with a rinse of water added a little vinegar.
