Sari silk ribbon, pot luck colours. Pure silk, handmade 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 a group of women I work with in Northern India. I have even helped them make ribbon yarns in their village. The waste silk fabric is torn by hand and then sewn end to end using a winder sewing machine. Each skein is unique with occasional patterns and even some metallic embroidery just like the sari it came from.
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.
Each 100g skein is approx 45 yards.
