Silk Tweed by La Bien Aimée

What to knit in Silk Tweed?

Silk Tweed is a light fingering weight made of 100% Silk noil. It offers 250m / 273yds for 50g. Silk Tweed is perfect for all your summer knits! Now that June is here, you can feel the first hints of summer in the air. It makes me want to cast on light summer tops and breezy shawls.

Need pattern suggestions? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! We have compiled a huge list of patterns that would be perfect to knit in Silk Tweed. There are lots of summer tops of all types: tank tops, raglan, drop shoulder tops, lace details, mohair stripes. We have also added a few accessories for good measure. 

I’m currently swatching in Silk Tweed and Mohair Silk to knit a Rock it Tee by Tanis Lavallée. I’m obsessed with those light Mohair stripes and the beautiful texture of the Silk Tweed.
