KCPSKB - KNITTING/CROCHET SILK

Imported from Germany and as used in the "Gildebrief" to make your Antique reproduction dolls socks.
An average 25g ball will make 5 pairs of doll socks - using size 0.75mm (21ís) knitting needles.
And to give you an idea of weight, it seems to be between the 60-count and 80-count crochet cotton in terms of thickness.

100% pure silk. Colours: some a bit obscure but I have tried my best to describe accurately; Peach, light tan, pale olive, dark red, deep ruby.
All other colours shown are now sold out.


£1.10 per 5g ball
£5.50 per 25g ball
Free sock pattern with permission from "Gildebrief" available with your order of this silk yarn.
Quote ĎFree Sock Patterní on your order form. (2 different sock patterns work using either a set of 5 x 0.75mm [21ís] needles or a set of 5 x 1.2mm [18's] needles)



KCPSUK - SILK YARN from the UK

100% silk yarn, appears to be a little finer than the 80-count thread. (Please tell me if Iím wrong - as Iím no knitter!) It is very soft and probably a pain to knit with, but I think it would be worth the effort. Fantastic for free style embroidery work.
Discontinuing when current stocks are out.

100% Silk yarn.
Colours; White and Purple only


50p per 5g ball
£2.50 per 25g ball
I have now crocheted with the UK silk yarn and the results are just wonderful, and it is not so difficult to use, after all.
