Seasilk is a wonderful laceweight yarn from the Canadian Company, Handmaiden, and for me, it was love at first sight. Made from 70% silk and 30% Seacell it has beautiful drape and sheen. Manufactured by the German company, Zimmer AG, they claim that the seaweed containing trace elements of vitamin E, calcium and magnesium are absorbed through the skin of the wearer (maybe the knitter too?). Whether or not that claim is true, it does feel lovely on the skin and I think could be safely knit by or for even the most sensitive skins.
I chose this yarn in "capri" to create the waterfall scarf for my dear friend, Sharon, for her birthday. But now that I've worked with it, I think seasilk just begs to be knit into a beautiful lacework shawl.
Have you knit anything with this yarn yet?
