The tweed-like tone-in-tone appearance results from the addition of 10% bourette silk.
"Sarah Tweed" has a dry feel and the typical smell of bourette silk - a natural product. The yarn is the perfect starting material for those who find mulberry silk "too cold" because it is smooth and somewhat slippery.
