Breathe new life into your fibre arts with this handspun silk and merino yarn. Each purchase of these yarns help to keep ancient traditions alive as well as offering employment and sustainable living in rural villages of India.
Spinning our yarns is the only source of income in these areas of India. It enables these women to send their children to school where they are offered an education and quality of life. The alternative is living in slums in big cities searching for work and living in the most awful of conditions.
