What prompted our friends at The Loom to create this wonderful silk yarn? “It started with the knowledge we have about silk and the passion we have for it. After more than 40 years in silk yarn and fabric business we want to share the goodness of silk and create unique yarns for weaving, knitting, and other handicrafts out of it.”
Risoni is a delightfully rich and luxurious silk yarn. This 2ply lace yarn is thick and thin with slubs randomly throughout. The silk fiber accepts the dye beautifully and the resulting in an intense color pallete. Meant to be knit open and airy, Risoni has a certain crispness and hold which can only be found in pure silk.
