Handspun noil silk in mixed threads. 2 available
Silk noil yarn. Chunky and beautifully handmade.
Noil silk is produced using the short fibres left over from the combing process. Another example of an ethical recycled silk with an unusual but durable texture.
These sari silk yarns are spun using a drop spindle in villages in Northern India. Spinning these yarns is their only source of income. 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 silk yarns, their nature and textures are peerless. We as a supplier and you as a customer are not only supporting these communities but we are saving waste from landfill!
This yarn is suitable for knitting, crochet, weaving, making rugs, arts and crafts and more. Ethical, sustainable yarns made by talented artisans!
Each 100g skein is approx 140 yards.
