Yarn Review: Blacker Yarns Samite

Back in March, at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival, I was given the sweetest little sample skein of Samite, from Blacker Yarns, in the Eternal Day colour-way.  It was wound into a ball almost immediately. I have been wistfully squishing it ever since, and wondering what stitch pattern to try out.

Last week I finally put needles to yarn, and will be telling you about the results over the next few day.  To start off though, all the vital stats are below.


Yarn weight 4 ply/Fingering; Skein weight 100 g; Fibre content 30% Blue-faced Leicester, 40% Shetland, 20% Ahimsa Silk, 10% Gotland; Length 460 m; Tension 28 stitches over 10 cm; Recommended needle 2.75 mm; No. of plys 2;  Made in Cornwall, UK.
