SW Plump Silk 4ply/Abigail/100g
This was a one of a kind, dyed simply to test this delicious new base. Plump Silk is 55% superwash merino and 45% silk, in a 4ply/fingering weight. At 365m per 100g, it's slightly thicker than my usual sock/4ply bases but having tested it out with my high twist silk base (of the same meterage), it comes up very similar to that, but it is much shinier and softer. Buying one skein? Not problem, I have hand picked suitable 100g projects from Ravelry and pinned them to my Pinterest! Click here for knitting and here for crochet! About my yarn and my processes: All of my yarn is sourced from suppliers who do not support mulesing. A large portion of my stock originates from South America, but BFL is British. The superwashing process used by my supplier uses resin and not plastic. I do send your yarn out in cellophane bags within poly mailers. This is for extra protection, because I have seen many damaged parcels in the past, but I am aware of the issues with plastic. The poly mailers are recycled. The cellophane bags can be reused, and I will be writing a blog post about inventive ways to re-use them. If you would prefer to have your yarn sent without the extra cellophane bag, please leave a note on your purchase. I do work in a pet friendly home, with one cat and one dog. My yarn is kept away from the animals, but you may want to consider this if you have very severe allergies.
