Spun and dyed in Japan, Cattail Silk has a soft shine, a wonderfully earthy texture, and a casual spin speckled by little nubs of color. We love its self assurance and offhand elegance, its warm and welcome attitude. In thirty-six beautiful colors, each named from Japan's list of traditional, time-honored colors, Cattail Silk's palette is as subtle as the yarn itself. It knits up in a range from sport to fingering weight, and at over 600 yards per skein, you’ll hardly ever need more than a few! Please note that a few of these colors may run a little bit. If you're knitting a darker color with a lighter one, please consider setting the darker yarn's dye to prevent bleeding. Check out our Re-fixing Dye Tutorial for tips on how!
