Save to My Favorites


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 dozens of 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!
