I'm just about to start a project with some recycled sari silk.  For some reason or another, I feel cautious about using this yarn.  Is there anything special I should know about knitting with sari silk?  Does it tear easily?

.... I've got first-time jitters!

Thanks,
Tara

It can be very thin in places....very very thin. Just watch out for those thread like strands! Its hard to keep a consistant gauge with it as well, and I've heard some of the yarns have junk like twigs still in it (mine was twig free).

its alright. really stiff to knit with at times.. and definately definately thins out lots in places(i stopped a project because it was so thin it looked silly) but it is gorgeous and for the right project it will be beautiful.......
