Myrtle Vegan Silk by Queensland

This 100% vegan silk, "Myrtle" from the Queensland Collection is extremely soft, has a sheen, and an incredible drape. This yarn is spun from Eucalyptus, sustainable and compostable.  We knit a swatch and did not find it splitty. 

  • 100% lyocell
  • 3.5oz./100 grams; 180 yards/165meters
  • worsted/aran weight - 16-20 sts. per inch on US 7-9 (4.5mm-5.5mm);  hook size 7-I (4.5mm-5.5mm)
  • machine wash, lay flat to dry

We gauged this yarn and like it best for a garment at 5 sts. = 1" on a US 6 (4mm).
