Jo Sharp Mulberry Silk Georgette

Mulberry Silk Georgette is a new, exquisitely soft and lustrous Jo Sharp yarn made with 25% Mulberry Silk and 75% Extrafine Merino Wool. Ideal for baby and to wear close to the skin and is a hand wash fabric. Mulberry Silk Georgette replaces Alpaca Silk Georgette, and knits to a very similar tension, therefore Alpaca Silk Georgette patterns may be used with this yarn. Resulting garments will be a little lighter and softer. Note that the following three Alpaca Silk Georgette shades are being replaced within this collection: Pebble, Devon, Woodland. Mulberry Silk is the finest, smoothest and most lustrous silk available in the market. A premium is paid for Mulberry Silk, which was first developed in China and is made from the silkworms of the Bombyx Mori Moth. The moths are kept in a controlled environment, free from noise and strong odour and are fed exclusively on Mulberry leaves. Mulberry Silk is superior to other “wild silks” which are grown from a variety of feeds, and which tend to be rougher in texture, heavier and less lustrous.
