Soft Silk is a soft and rustic bourette silk, also known as raw silk. This yarn is ideal for baby and children's garments because of this quality : warm in winter and cooling on a hot summer day. Due to the high proportion of silk glue (whose smell dissipates relatively quickly), the bourette silk is said to have a natural healing power. It also can have anti-inflammatory effects and soothe the skin.
Nature is important to BC Garn, therefore Soft Silk is dyed with AZO free and Oeko-Tex certified dyes, this means that the dye process is gentle to the environment. Soft Silk is spun and dyed by a small mill in India.
There may be excess dye in some of the colors. It is recommended to rinse the yarn in cold water before use; finish with a rinse of water and a little vinegar. Always wash in cold water.
