fine fibers & yarns – silk & silk blends
studio of artist/author W.J. Johnson

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.

When dyeing, the combination of superwash merino wool, yak, and silk produce spectacular colors. (Origin: Italy)
