Knitting off Broadway

Alchemy Silk Purse

$ 32.50

A single-ply silk yarn in stunning, vibrant colors.  Each skein is 163 yards, and 100% silk.  The suggested gauge is 5.5 sts per inch on a US 6 needle.  Hand Wash.

Remember that when working with a single ply non-streatchy fiber that it will bias unless you do a variety of knits and purl stitches.  

 We have added a custom Silk Purse Order option for those of you who need 5 or more skeins of this yarn.  Please email us your color choice to and we will keep you posted on the status of your order.  Please allow up to 45 days to receive your yarn, but in general it takes around 10 business days.

Here we used a strand of silk purse held with a strand Pagoda in contrasting colors for a fun, textured look.
