Touch of Silk Yarn - Discontinued

SKU: 683-136F

$6.99

DISCONTINUED: This yarn is no longer available; however, we make this information available as a courtesy to those who still have the yarn. 

A blend of 60% polyester, 20% cotton, and 20% silk creates this single ply yarn with a subtly nubby tweedy texture. It is a dream for those looking for something a little more distinctive than a basic yarn, but still with an everyday appeal. Touch of Silk is a perfect option for garments and accessories for all genders. Unlike yarns with high silk content, this yarn does not have a “crunchy” hand feel. It is soft, scratch-free, and suited for against-the-skin wear. Projects can be machine washed, but lay items flat to dry to maintain their shape.

This was my first time trying this yarn.

It will also be my last time. It smells awful. I tried to air it out to no avail. I’m rolling with the punches though. The drape isn’t great so I’m using a larger than recommended set of needles. It helps a lot. I do like it’s tweed like look. All in all, I love Lion Brand but I’ll stay away from this Touch of Silk in the future.

Hello - our apologies for the unusual odor! Please email our quality control team at support@email.lionbrand.com so we can make a note of this issue.

Shawl looking lovely.

I like the look and feel of this yarn. My first skein however, gave me trouble finding the ends and kept sticking together because of the combination of the fibers. So, it's not smooth when pulling more yarn to use. But, it is a minor annoyance. I would use this yarn again. The shawl I'm making looks lovely and the pattern is evident.

Bad musty smell

This yarn is soft to the touch but it has a bad musty smell. The smell hasn’t gone away even after I opened the plastic and let it breathe. I’m hoping that after I make something with it and wash it it will go away. If not, it would be a complete waste; I cannot picture myself wearing anything that smells this bad.
