Imported from Italy. The steel is used as core with silk tram wrapped around it. As the silk is on the outside, this yarn can be dyed/overdyed with any dye you would normally use for silk. The stainless steel fiber has memory, therefore, once the woven cloth is wet-finished, it will twist and crinkle – giving the fabric a very interesting organic appearance. Since this is a rather thin yarn, if knitting with it, you may want to carry multiple strands. 76% tram silk, 24% stainless steel.
