Originally used as an industrial yarn to create oil filters, this extra fine yarn has a core of stainless steel with silk wrapped around the core. Because of the stainless steel, there is memory in the yarn. You can create something, twist it, and it will stay in that shape unless you straighten it out.
It is easiest if you knit this yarn in 2 strands, however a lace stitch in a single strand is beautiful. If you work in 2 strands, there will be a variegation in the fabric. Works fine as a warp yarn for weavers.
Dry clean or hand wash.
