Excerpt from Kinks for Knitters: No. 3; From the Questions and Answers Department of the Textile World Record
I would suggest that Calais get his silk on small cones and have his machines fitted with stop motions. In knitting this class of stock it is also necessary to have a... slight tension on the yarn. The knots in the silk play an important part in the knitting as the cones are all universal wound and almost every knot catches the yarn and as it is hard and of a woody nature will break the end every time unless a stop motion is used to offset the breaking. He will also find it neces sary to run machines slower than on cotton. Or spun or thrown silk. I have made knitted scarfs of the stockinet pattern which is prac tically the same fabric and found considerable trouble until adopting the above measures.
