Designed by Kathleen Power Johnson

Silk Serica is a 3-ply, twisted filament silk with a magnificent, rich sheen. It is soft and luxurious to the touch, and it makes an excellent crochet thread for creating elegant accents and heirloom jewelry. 

Use a non-greasy hand creme to keep the silk from snagging on rough spots.

  •  Size 9 (1.25mm) steel crochet hook
