Sari silk yarn, soft white, recycled silk fibres from sari production.
Handspun sari silk yarn is produced from waste silk fibres left over from sari manufacturing in India. It is spun using a drop spindle which has also been handmade by women in rural India.
They spin in their homes. They can afford to send their children to school. They command their price, they work for themselves. This is a sustainable product. Beautifully spun, this artisan yarn is not only adding a beautiful texture to your art it is sustaining and keeping rural communities alive.
Each 100g skein is approx 65 yards.
