On a weekend trip to San Antonio with my son, I managed a detour to Inskein Yarns. Inskein Yarns is located in a strip mall on a busy street. It is very small and does not have a huge selection. Despite its tiny size, there were 7-8 women huddled into a circle taking a knitting class.
They didn’t have any unique yarns but I found this skein of Maharashtra Silk which has 800 yards of 100% pure silk.
I liked the greens and purples and the yarn has a nice feel and sheen. Unfortunately, as I wound the skein into a ball, the yarn continuously fell apart. The single-ply was too frail, as if it had been spun too loosely.
The only thing I can think of to salvage it is to ply it with another fingering weight yarn. Any suggestions?
