Why Silk Blend?

(made by Manos - Artisans of Premium Quality Yarns)

See Tal from Morris & Sons talk about Manos Silk Blend's beautiful knitting yarn range. Tal started helping her mother, Ruth Morris back in their first cute very small craft store in Rose Bay (Sydney) helping customers learn the art of Tapestry. Now 45 years later Tal is an authority on Knitting and Crochet after helping thousands of customers with every type of Knitting/Crochet project imaginable. Here in this video learn why we love the Manos Yarn range and the unique qualities of Manos Silk Blend Knitting Yarn. Enjoy!


Silk Blend is a classic and elegant knitting yarn, it has the unbelievable softness of merino extrafine (non superwash) and the subtle glow of raw silk. Tussah silk is used, produced by worms that feed on oak and similar tree leaves, rich in tannins that give it a beautiful golden shine.

Silk Bend is a single ply knitting yarn that knits up clean and with a wonderful stitch definition.
