Yarn That Never Goes Out of Style

Art Yarns Beaded Silk Yarn
With the holiday season beginning, ladies are looking for more lustrous fabrics to add some sparkle to those winter ensembles. Rather than adding a rhinestone pin, a garment made from silk yarn is a classier, subtler way to shine. A sweater made from silk yarn will cost more than other conventional yarns, but it will be a luxury item that the wearer will be able to treasure for years to come.

Silk knitting yarn has the best of both worlds in that it is both beautiful and practical. It is soft, shiny, and drapes wonderfully, but it also retains heat and is one of the strongest natural fibers in the world. There is a good reason why silk fabrics have been sought after for thousands of years. In fact, the durability of silk has been demonstrated through the recovery of ancient silk garments, still perfectly intact.

If you’re looking for a subtle sheen, silk yarn is perfect. If you really want to stand out though, you can up the ante with beaded silk yarn, which features beautiful little sequins and beads placed intermittently throughout the yarn. The beads are small enough so that they won’t get in the way while knitting and you can add a gorgeous sparkle effect to any garment.

Silk knitting yarn is the perfect way to turn what would have been a normal, boring sweater, scarf or hat into something much more elegant—without even changing the pattern. And with silk’s natural strength and warmth, you won’t be sacrificing any practicality in the name of fashion. If you want to create a one-of-a-kind treasure that is as warm and durable as it is stunning and gorgeous, choose the yarn that never goes out of style.
