Fiber Content: 100% Spun Silk
Care Instructions: Handwash
This luxurious silk lace yarn is named after the Buddhist goddess of light, Marici (pronounced Mar-ee-shi). We recommend this yarn for advanced lace knitters since it can be quite slippery and it has no elasticity, but the resulting fabric has the most incredible drape and shine making it well worth the effort!
All colors work well on this yarn base- light colors will come out more saturated than on Eos, because the silk does like to drink up the dye. Just wait till you see bold, saturated colors on Ling- va va voom!
This shiny silk yarn doesn't need beads to catch everyone's attention but for a special occasion shawl, or if you just like the extra weight of beads, you can't beat a bit of extra Bling!
Below you'll find some examples of colorways dyed on Marici but this yarn, like all of our yarn and fiber, is available in ANY of the colorways listed in the Colors section of our website.
