Developed as a color to represent Catherine the Great, Catherine is a super-saturated dark burgundy red. Lavish, velvety, and fit for a queen!
Big and luxurious, Big Silk combines the bounce and warmth of Merino wool with the shine and drape of cultivated silk. The generous yardage means Big Silk is great for big cowls, shawls, and scarves - one skein is enough for most worsted-weight accessory projects. Big Silk is a web exclusive yarn and does not travel with us to shows.
