Splendor is a 12 strand silk floss with an unusual construction. It has three bundles of fours strands each. It is easiest if you pull the bundles out first and then take out each strand. The twist of each individual strand is tighter than most silks. This makes Splendor easier to use. It will not snag easily, even on hands that are rough. Be careful to strand and lay the silk to keep the nice shine. This silk is perfect for people who have been afraid of using silks. Many of the usual problems experienced with other silks will not occur with Splendor.
