Collection: Silk

Silk, a natural protein fibre produced by silkworms, has a rich history dating back over 5,000 years to Ancient China. Legend has it that the Empress Leizu discovered silkworms while sipping tea beneath a mulberry tree. She recognised the potential of the silkworm's cocoon and introduced the process of silk cultivation and weaving to the Chinese people. This closely guarded secret eventually spread along the Silk Road, facilitating cultural exchange and economic growth.

The extraordinary properties of silk, such as its natural temperature-regulating abilities and hypoallergenic nature, make it a coveted material in the yarn industry. The smooth and lustrous surface of silk yarns allows for vibrant dye absorption, resulting in exquisite and enduring colours. Additionally, silk's inherent strength provides durability to the yarns, ensuring the longevity of garments and textiles crafted from this extraordinary natural fibre. 

Our hand dyed pure silk yarns are ideal for accessories like shawls and wraps as well as garments like summer tops and lightweight cardigans.
