The most outstanding thing about duke silk is the impressive range of colors. You will be spoilt for choice. From solids to wildly variegated, every imaginable hue is on the shade card. Go all pastel, dabble in a bit of summer or try exotic and pick peacock (oh yes, there’s stuff like that, too). You can pick from a wide range of colors or even have the silk specially dyed to suit your unique tastes.

Best suited for some of your projects

With its beautiful luster and sheen and a fine drape, this yarn is perfectly suited for some of your projects. Shawls and scarves are an obvious choice. Tops and other garments worn close to the skin can also be fashioned out of this soft and luxurious yarn. It is completely non-itchy and has a great feel.

Feel warm, feel cool and feel good

Silk is endowed with natural heat-regulating properties – this means it has the capacity to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. So you can use it to knit up stuff that will keep you warm in the winter without being bulky and make cool and airy things for the summer.
