Soy silk is made from the residue of soybeans from tofu manufacturing. It is 100% natural and free of any petrochemicals. This fiber offers superior moisture absorption and ventilation properties along with beautiful draping, softness, and warmth. If you enjoy spinning silk or Tencel, you will also love spinning soy silk. Staple length (the soy silk itself) is between three and four inches, a fine fiber diameter and surface that allows the fibers to slide past each other, drafting this material to the thickness you want is easy. The finished skeins need to be snapped between your hands when it has dried after setting the twist to straighten out the fibers.
