Orders are shipping daily. Because of the global pandemic, delivery times are likely to be longer than usual and may be somewhat unpredictable. Although most items arrive remarkably promptly considering the circumstances, please do not contact me to ask where your order is until two weeks have elapsed (UK) or one month (international). Prior to that, please use the tracking information. I have made signed-for delivery compulsory on a temporary basis until postal services are managing better or folk become used to slightly longer waits. Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.

The Squeaking Silk Moth (Rhodinia fugax) caterpillar will chirrup when threatened. They rapidly contract their bodies, forcing air through their spiracula, emitting a high pitched squeaking sound. The moth pictured is a female, with males generally being darker with orange and brown colouration. Their silk has different properties than that of the domesticated silk moth and is green in colour.

It is a soft and smooth sock (4ply/fingering) weight yarn spun from 75% superwash merino wool with 25% mulberry silk for a luxurious drape and sheen. Around 400 metres per 100g skein. Suitable for 2-3mm needles.

This yarn is presented as a skein. If you would like it caked then this adds 24h to the dispatch time and costs £2. You can purchase this service here:
