Skinny Silk Yarns! The silk yarns are either: doupioni silk (a slubby silk yarn with bumps and irregularities where the fibers from several cocoons have been reeled together), tram silk (a slightly twisted yarn made from several strands of reeled silk) or spun silk (2 strands of tram have been plied together to make a tightly twisted yarn).
The yardage on this silk yarn is approximately 14,000 yards per pound.
The yarn is from the last silk mill in the US to make silk ties and bridal fabric.
