Organic ahimsa silk yarn. Eri, Ghicha, nassi, muga blend.
We have blended all types of organic silk fibres together to form this exciting super fine yarn. It contains eri fibres, nassi fibres, tussar fibres and muga silk fibres.
In conventional cultivated silk (mulberry) the cocoons are boiled with the larvae still inside, however if the cocoons are boiled after the larvae have left them, the silk made is then called non-violent silk, wild silk, organic silk and Ahimsa Silk. Handspun in rural villages using ancient techniques. The production of this yarn has enabled women and families to use their existing skills in their homes providing work in the most poorest parts of India. No chemicals were used in the production of these yarns.
We sell this yarn in skeins of 100g approx which is approx 2000+ yards in length.
It is super fine weight like a thread weight. It is beautiful and soft with a very unusual texture.
