Geisha from Nature's Luxury is a hand-dyed silk treasure! And we had Danica dye us bonus-size skeins (50 grams versus 40 grams) so you can get even more kicks knitting with this fabulous fiber! The unique structure of the flat ribbon looks and feels like raffia or straw in the skein but, when knitted, melts into a sumptuously soft fabric with incredible drape and sheen. To assure an even result in your piece, please alternate skeins as you go.
We were totally awestruck when we came upon Danica's use of Geisha and Silk Divine in Andrea Mowry's Birds of a Feather! Oh my! Danica used 2 skeins each of Geisha and Silk Divine and needle sizes 4 (for the Geisha) & 5 (for the Silk Divine). The pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry.
