Pearl Yarn is a Hit!

Pearl Yarn is a Hit!

Our new Pearl Yarn celebrating the 30th anniversary of Vogue Knitting Magazine is flying off the shelves. Pearl fiber is produced via a highly refined and sophisticated production process where nano-grade pearl powder is added into the cellulose spinning process.

Pearl Yarn

The pearl powder evenly covers the inside and the outside surface of the fibers and is permanently bonded. The pearl fibers viscose base allows for excellent breath-ability and the pearl
nano-powder provides a smooth, luxurious velvet touch.

Pearl fiber is:

  • Ultra soft touch
  • Anti- ultraviolet
  • Skin nourishing- reducing freckles, keeps skin smooth if worn regularly
  • Fabrics have good moisture management properties and breath-ability

Important Updates for AIR and Black Pearl for String

We’re thrilled to have such an enthusiastic response to our Black Pearl yarn! We would just like to let everyone know that the packaging on the Black Pearl for String is correct. The String Edition is available in 3 exclusive colors and is also a different gauge than the Black Pearl fine laceweight yarn that was mislabeled earlier this year.

Air Series

We do have a few skeins left of the AIR Pearl Special Edition, a luxurious laceweight yarn that comes in 100 gram skeins in an all-natural color. This yarn was made especially for VK Live for String – click here to contact String and order your skein while supplies last!

Black Pearl Fingering

Black Pearl Fingering

Our own Black Pearl yarn is a luxurious fingering weight yarn comprised of 50% Pearl and 50% tencel fiber. Pearl fiber is produced via a highly refined and sophisticated production process where nano-grade pearl powder is added into the cellulose spinning process.

The pearl powder evenly covers both the inside and outside surface of the fibers and is permanently bonded. The pearl fiber’s base allows for excellent breathability and a smooth, velvety touch.

An Important Update about Black Pearl

An Important Update about Black Pearl

Due to a misunderstanding with the mill that skeined our Black Pearl Fine Laceweight yarn, we have discovered the skeins are about 812 yards instead of the 940 printed on the box.

Black Pearl Yarn

A few hundred were shipped before we discovered the mistake and many have already been sold to consumers.  If you’re one of them, please contact the shop where you purchased the yarn for an additional 1.5 ounce skein.  The boxes will be re-labeled with the correct yardage and the price reduced accordingly.

We’re sorry for the problem and hope no one has come up short of finishing a garment.  The heavier gauge fingering was the correct weight and yardage. If you’re a retailer and we haven’t reached you yet, please contact us as soon as possible.

We would like to offer our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this issue may have caused; we know what it’s like to come up short on a project!
