The Sunny Side of Sunsilk

Working here at Sunshine Yarns, I am surrounded by beautiful yarns all waiting to be worked with knitting needles or crochet hooks.  One particular yarn stands out.

Straight out of the box, this yarn shimmers like the sun and brightens up any yarn stash.  Sunsilk is a two-ply fingering weight 100% silk yarn.  It is cool to the touch and drapes like water; perfect for both summer and winter projects.  The drape and sheen of this yarn will make your lace knitting stand out more than any other yarn.  Here are two shawls that Dani made out of Sunsilk.

The yellow shawl is Ishbel by Yoslda Teague in the Sunshine colorway.  The tan shawl is dyed in Mushroom and was knit in the Swallowtail pattern by Evelyn A. Clark.  Both of these patterns can be found on Ravelry
