About Silk Yarns

Whether you are new to knitting or an experienced knitter, you may have heard of silk yarn. While you can find plenty of yarn made from regular silk, you may be less familiar with other types. Recycled silk yarn, for example, is made from the waste silk gathered from factories in India. The yarn is more irregular than other types of yarn, and it has quite a bit of variety to it. No two skeins are alike. Another yarn you may want to try is bamboo silk yarn. Bamboo is a renewable resource, and when spun into a yarn, it has a luxurious feel. When spun together with silk, it ends up as a yarn that is luxurious to the touch and that drapes very well. If you are looking for a new type of yarn with which to knit, silk yarn is an excellent choice. The huge selection on eBay means that you can try all sorts of different types of yarn that you may not have access to locally.
