Our Alina Beaded Silk Yarn is handmade from Mulberry silk and is handspun as a 6 ply yarn. Once the yarn is made our amazing women artisans place these adorable, dainty glass beads throughout each skein. The Mulberry Silk this yarn is made from allows our artisans who hand-dye each of these skeins, to capture bright and vivid colors and a beautiful sheen. Each skein of this yarn is 85 meters and it is a Sport/Baby weight.
