Sari silk ribbon, eye popping colour. Unique ribbon yarn.
Multicoloured sari silk ribbon yarn is made from strips of sari silk waste left over from silk sari manufacturing in India. Magical, unique and handmade ribbon yarns, ethical and fairly traded.
These sari silk ribbon yarns are produced by women's co-ops and families that we work directly with in Northern India. The waste silk fabric is torn by hand and then sewn end to end using a winder sewing machine. See our images of Julie from Yarn Yarn attempting to produce a sari silk ribbon skein!
Each piece of sari silk, each skein of ribbon yarn has its own personality with an identity that is peerless. We strive to provide the best quality sari silk ribbon from the best quality of sari silk fabric available to us with a magical colour spectrum for all your creative endeavours. Whether you are a knitter, whether you crochet, weave, produce textile art and make jewellery this yarn will inspire you. It is also a great chunky yarn for rug hooking!
By purchasing these yarns you are supporting fair trade, happy working conditions and the continuation of ancient crafts in rural villages.
Magical art yarns, magical people. See 'Our Yarn Journey' for more info on the craftspeople and women's co-ops who produce these yarns and how they are produced.
