Hand-painted, luxury 100% silk worsted-weight yarn in Golden Sage (soft gold-sage-greens)
Knittique is now in its second year of producing exclusive, limited-edition hand-painted yarns, and this sumptuous silk yarn is one of the luxury fibers I specialize in!
This fascinating colorway, Golden Sage (from my new Kitchen Garden Collection), features an amazingly subtle range of golden greens, accented with bits of bronze. And in this truly luxurious 100% silk yarn with its natural sheen, these colors positively shimmer!

PLEASE NOTE: All yarns will be wound into center-pull balls before shipping, so they'll arrive ready-to-use! If you'd rather your yarn was left in skein form (as shown here), you must let us know when you place your order. Thank you!
Care: Hand wash in cool water with mild detergent. Rinse in cool water, and gently squeeze out excess water. Lay on towels or drying rack to air-dry; you could also put it in your dryer IF it's with no heat at all, such as a gentle cycle.
PROJECT IDEAS: If knitted alone on a fairly large needle (U.S. 10.5-13), you could make a cowl or small scarf from this 1 skein. Try a lace stitch to make it go further, or combine with another yarn (maybe a fingering-weight mohair?) and work these strands together on a larger needle for a beautiful texture combination.
