Amerah silk top with Maldive lace trim

Amerah 100% silk tape has the classic feel of raw silk and the random dye process of muted colours that mix and match with other South West Trading Company yarns, makes this yarn very versatile to knit. Achieve a classic look for smart casual wear or to team with your favourite jeans. Amerah is just as comfortable on a hot summer's day in a sleeveless top as this 3/4 sleeved shell for between season wear.

Knitted by Sue, the classic V-neck shell used 8x 50g balls. Classified as a 10ply Aran yarn this will easily knit to an 8ply pattern- check tension first. Note the 'lace' ruffle effect with Lana Gatto's Maldive for a dressed up trim effect.
