Sari silk yarn in an ox blood brown.
Waste silk from the sari mills in India make fabulous yarns. 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.
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 65 yards.
