Are you need ing to add a bit of originality to your fibre artworks? These sari silk yarns are a good place to start. Not only are they recycled from silk waste in India, they are spun by women's co-operatives in rural and very deprived areas by hand. Waste silk from the sari mills in India make fabulous yarns and check out this crazy red colour, doesn't it just pop out at you? These sari silk yarns are spun using a drop spindle in villages around Northern India. Spinning these yarns are their only source of income in these communities. 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. They are soft, luxurious, handpsun and vibrant. They are also ethical, sustainable and recycled. Save 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!
