Discounted yarn pack. Mixed Noil Yarns. SOLD OUT

| /

Pack of four silk noil yarns. Two DK and two lace weight! 

This silk noil yarn is lovely and soft like cotton and has been made in rural India by village women using traditional techniques. 

Noil silk is produced using the short fibres left over from the combing process. 

These silk noil yarns are spun using a charka wheel in villages in Northern India. Spinning these yarns is the only source of income within 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 handmade yarn can be used for knitting, crochet, weaving and fibre arts.

Each 100g skein is approx 220 yards. Could be used in weaving but also could be used in embroidery and fine lace knitting.
