Skacel's "Urban Silk" is a blend of silk and cotton. It's soft, and a bit nubby. See it on the cover of Interweave Knits, Spring 2008!As you may have noticed this black ball of yarn is in the form of a ball and not a skein like the rest of its family. Sorry for the inconvenience as Skacel is changing the brand of Urban Silk from balls to skeins.
