A-20 Silk Stainless Steel is a blend of 69% stainless steel and 31% silk with 622 yards on a one ounce cone. And A-165 Tokken Silk is 100% raw silk with 598 yards on a once ounce cone.

We've paired each colorway with strands of 8/0 seed beads from Bead Biz plus two different beading tools: a beading needle and a steel 0.7 mm beading hook.
With different combinations of yarn held together, designer Lisa Whiting has created two beaded shawls. Cherry Blossoms in a knit shawl with a soft lace body and textured edging beaded with the included beading hook.
Maple Branch is a crochet design inspired by architecture, using the beading needle to pre-strand the matching beads. These pieces will bring out the Zen master in all of you.
