Hi there!

Just wanted to share that I am working with the Summer Tweed as well. From what I understand, that weird oily smell and residue is the raw silk that is used in the yarn. It leaves a bit of the oil on your hands as well. Nothing to be alarmed about, it comes out when you give it the first wash (or so I was told). I compared it to some of my other raw silks and it smells the same, so I am inclined to believe the story. BTW, it knits up like a dream - fast and smooth. hope that helps =)
