Shaharazade is blend of rayon and cotton spun into a seed yarn. A seed yarn, also called a knot or knop yarn, is made by allowing one ply to wrap around another until a knot builds up. In this yarn, the knots are in the shiny rayon, so they almost look like beads. Shaharazade takes dye well, requiring a fiber reactive dye like Procion.
This yarn comes in a reeled hank, which must be wound into a ball before use. We are happy to wind the yarn for you at no charge, but this does make the yarn non-returnable. If you would like your skeins wound, please request it in the "Shipping Instructions" box during the checkout process. (If you will be dyeing this yarn, it is best to keep it in its reeled hank.)
