Luxurious Pure Silk

Cruelty
free silk

For ethical knitwear

Our Pure silk is beautifully light, responsibly and ethically sourced

Our Pure Silk is made of 100 % bourette silk. Bourette silk is made of silk waste created during silk processing. The short, leftover silk fibers are spun into a new yarn. It has a rustic and uneven look and is less shiny than other types of silk. This is the perfect yarn for summer tops and summer dresses, but it will also make a luxurious sweater combined with our Soft Silk Mohair.

Meet Our ethical yarn

Our silk is cruelty free. Silk is made of silk threads that come from silk worm’s cocoons. The cocoons are made of one single very, very long thread. In conventional silk production the cocoons are boiled, leaving the silk worms to die. This way the long intact silk thread can be used. Our silk is made of silk threads from broken cocoons, where the silk worms have evolved into moths and escaped from the cocoon. The broken cocoon is now many short pieces of silk thread. These short silk fibers are made into yarn. This is a very time consuming process and the final result is less smooth than other silk, because long silk threads make a more smooth final silk product.
