Named for the barn swallow that migrates to Japan during cherry blossom season, this is a classic worsted-weight silk/wool blend. Tsubame is a similar thickness to Noro Silk Garden, Kureyon, and Ito, so feel free to substitute it in patterns, keeping in mind that each oversized ball of Tsubame contains a whopping 600 meters / 656 yards!

We have collected some pattern suggestions for you on Ravelry, including those pictured above. The one-ball #21 Eyelet Scarf pattern is free with yarn purchase, so let us know if you would like us to include a copy with your order by selecting it in the Free Pattern with Purchase drop-menu on this page.
