I found this stuff in a little shop in Jerome, AZ. It's silk fibers that have been swept up at a silk mill in Nepal and then spun into yarn. No two balls are the same color so you have to integrate by knitting 5 or 6 rows with one ball then changing to another. I was orignially going to knit neckties but it's hard for me to work it with any thing smaller then a #7 needle which is a little big for necktie stitches. So I don't know. I have eight balls of it so if anyone has any thoughts pass 'em on.
