Silk sari yarn, multicoloured, raspberry shades. SOLD OUT
Silk sari yarns have an edgy yet soft texture and are made from waste silk fibres left over from sari manufacturing.
Waste silk from the sari mills in India make fabulous yarns. Don't these raspberry shades just pop out at you! See 'our yarn journey' to see how these silk yarns are dyed!
These sari silk yarns are spun using a drop spindle in villages in Northern India. Spinning these yarns is the only source of income in these communities. By providing these spinning opportunities, we keep ancient traditions alive. We provide work in a socially responsible environment where no child labour is involved. We work directly with these women and families developing new colours and yarns from waste materials that would otherwise be destroyed! This is great news for us as yarn addicts because it adds a magical and inspirational spin to our creative endeavours.
The colours of these waste yarns and their textures are so unique. We as a supplier and you as a customer are not only supporting these communities but we are saving waste from landfill!
This is a super yarn for knitting, crochet, weaving, making rugs, arts and crafts and more. Ethical, sustainable yarns made by talented artisans!
Each 100g skein is approx 50 yards.
