How to Knit With Eri Silk Yarn?
Did you know that you can knit with Silk?
If not, then it's better you start now! But before I share some tips about knitting with Eri Silk, let's talk about the wonder of Eri Silk and its pros and cons.
Eri Silk is my favorite fiber. It's so gloriously soft, smooth, and has a sheen. Not to mention that it has a beautiful drape and is deceptively strong.
Ok, let's play a game of word association. I say, "silk," you may say, “silk", "satin", "fancy". We bet you don't say” “warm" or “woolly." Why?
Because its not synonymous with these qualities – warm and woolly – with silk, right? Eri silk fiber is different. So different that it surprises everyone.
The feel of Eri silk is one of our favorites. When you weave it or knit, your finished product will have the most appealing drape. The fall of the fabric will catch the eye of a passer-by.
