Not only is sari silk yarn 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 beautiful 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 is 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 a super silk yarn for knitting, crochet, weaving, making rugs, arts and crafts and more. Ethical, sustainable yarns made by talented artisans!
