Due to the current complexities with importing silk and silk-blend yarns, and because of the worldwide coronavirus, what I have in stock here is all that I have to offer for the immediate future. (These yarns were imported prior to the pandemic and have been kept in a sealed environment.)

Note: Prices are subject to change without notice. As new stock is eventually purchased, the prices will undoubtably increase. Price increases will apply to special orders.
