Roving Silk Yarn is made from the remnants of mulberry silk reeling process and reclaimed by carding & roving. Its Content is 100% Mulberry Silk after which it is hand tied & dyed by our team of dyers in small villages near Bangalore city.
Roving yarn is not twisted or plied like many types of yarn. It isna fun style to create quick, bulky, and admittedly heavy projects and gives the knitted piece a rather rustic look.
Working with Roving:
If you're knitting with roving yarn, the considerations are much like with any kind of bulky or super bulky yarn. Knitting with roving is a lot of fun because the projects work up so quickly and the personality of the fiber really shines through because it's so loosely spun.
You need to take special care to not split the yarn as you knit. It's often best to use needles that have a duller tip. Choose bamboo needles rather metal.
Projects worked with roving can get heavy really fast. Even if you don't need a circular needle for the pattern, you might want to use one to knit back and forth. This will take some of the weight off your wrists as you knit.
If you dabble in crochet, roving is a very popular choice for finger crochet and really quick, bulky projects.
PS: Some yarn makes refer to this as unspun yarn – but there usually is some amount of twist in it to hold the fibers together!
