Sari silk ribbon, eyelash textured ribbon yarn.
Beautiful quality eyelash sari silk ribbon. Our bright and vibrant eyelash edged sari silk ribbon yarn has been handmade by groups of women I work with in Northern India. They are made from waste silk believe it or not. Waste. Imagine this going into landfill.
The frayed eyelash effect adds texture to your creative crafting. They are all hand frayed.
These artisans hand tear strips of eyelashes sari silk ribbon and sew end to end to form a continuous yarn. Each piece of sari silk, each skein of ribbon yarn has it's own personality with a uniqueness 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.
By purchasing these yarns you are supporting fair trade, happy working conditions and the continuation of ancient crafts in rural villages.
