Samite is Blacker's brand new yarn consisting of beautiful British wool as well as very special Ahimsa silk that is humanely sourced. The composition of the yarn includes 30% smooth drapey Bluefaced Leicester with the bouncy froth of 40% Shetland wool, 20% guilt-free Ahimsa silk and 10% of fiber from Sue Blacker's own Gotland flock. This combination of pale and dark fibers creates a yarn with glorious depth of color and delicate nupps of silk. This yarn is luminous!
March 23, 2017 is the official launch date as set by Blacker. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts to have the yarn here for you in a timely manner, customs have held up all our boxes of this exquisite yarn and to date we are still waiting for them to pass through. Rest assured that as soon as they are released we will have it all available in the shop for your perusal and purchasing enjoyment.
