NEW! Henry's Attic Soie Naturelle Blanc 3 Ply Cones
Silk noil is a shorter silk fiber, with a squishy and soft hand that will remind you of cotton, but with the luxurious drape that you expect from silk. Silky soft to begin with, this yarn will get even softer the more you work with, wear, and wash it. The slight irregularities in the yarn give it an earthy texture, for an understated elegance, in a natural creamy color that is appealing left undyed. But if you wish, Soie Naturelle will take acid dye beautifully, with the saturation of color that silk is known for.
Whether you want to weave, knit, or crochet, you will come to love the affordable luxury of Soie Naturelle.
This yarn dyes with acid dyes.
Please note, this yarn is replacing the original Soie Naturelle collection. If you are familiar with Soie Naturelle, Soie Naturelle Blanc is a brighter white in color (but not a bleach white), and feels both smoother and more lofty than the original. The last photo shows both the old and new yarn for comparison.
