Antique Pearl is a wonderful soft ivory shade that will connect you with memories of long ago. My grandmother’s pearls, which are at least 60 years old, provided the perfect inspiration for this colorway. Often as pearls age, and they absorb oils from the skin when worn, they will change colors. It’s amazing to think what a beautiful thing can come from a single grain of sand, irritating an oyster.
This Antique Pearl shade of ivory is stunning on its own or would be a wonderful compliment to other colors for a two or more colored project. This is a kettle dyed colorway.

100% Mulberry Silk

Please note if a color is listed as a ‘backorder’ option, it will be dyed to order and may take up to a week to ship.
Please note that color variations may occur from skein to skein as a result of hand dyeing. I have matched the colors in the photo as close as real life as possible however some differences may be noticed from monitor to monitor. Please also order as many skeins as you need for your project as color variation may happen one dye lot to the next.
