105,000 m/kg / 54,100 yds/lb 120wpcm / 300wpi 10gms - 1050m 25gms - 2625m This spun silk is certainly very fine, but if you use two or three strands of different colours together you can achieve lovely richness. Or if you want to weave furrowed fabrics, it works well with the 60/2 nm silk.
15,000 m/kg / 7,440 yds/lb 25gms - 375m 100gms - 1500m 19wpc / 48wpi 30/2 silk is, for many hand weavers, the preferred weight of silk for a scarf.

As with all yarns, the exact shade can vary slightly between dye lots, so if colour consistency is important for your project make sure you buy enough at…
silk plied reeled 450den
22wpcm / 50wpi 10gms approx. - 180m circa 25gms approx. - 470m circa This is an extremely strong lustrous silk due to being reeled, however it has a higher twist than tram silk, making it suitable for warp as well as weft. The colour range was chosen for their suitability for use with popular weaving techniques that show an iridescence when the cloth moves.
tram silk 200-220den
200/220 denier 10 thread 40wpcm / 98wpi 10gms - 500m 25gms - 1250m Tram silk is reeled, not spun, and has very little twist, so it is the most lustrous silk you can get and is wonderful as weft. Some weavers like to use two or three shades wound together to give extra richness and depth of colour, so we have chosen our colour palette with that in mind.
