Silky Fluff is a brushed version of our silk Boucle. It has a very soft muted fluff that knits up to be almost chenille-like in texture. For the swatch below I used 4mm needles but smaller sizes would also work well. The fabric has a soft drapey texture. This would work well for Accessories and sweaters. The yarn takes the dye well, speckles will be soft and muted on this yarn due to the construction, I’ve speckled this sample and it turned out to be really delicate, it's lovely.
The strands in the yarn in the hank once dyed do stick together, they are easy to separate and do not affect the knitting, but this is part of the yarn construction and not a problem. The yarn can be rewound if the presentation isn’t to your liking.
