Cadence is an elegant silk yarn with a brushed finish. It is comprised of Muga silk which is know as the Golden Thread, as it has a golden hue and is the strongest of all the silks. The tonal colors of this yarn come from the underlying sheen of the natural gold of the unbleached Muga. Muga silk is also known as ‘Peace Silk’, as Jain practitioners developed a nonviolent method of harvesting wild silk filament after the silkworm has completed metamorphosis, in keeping with their belief that all living creatures are valued and must be protected. Our entire color palette was developed exclusively for Wool & Honey for Vijay Fibers and is based on the beauty of Northern Michigan.
Not sure what to knit with Cadence? We asked our good friend Beth Booth (greenleafknitter on both Ravelry and IG) to knit the Ginga Top with just two skeins, a flowy, lacy tank that transitions well into fall under a blazer or cardigan.
