Sari silk ribbon yarn in a new milk chocolate brown!
We have been working directly with our colleagues in India to continually improve the quality of the waste silk raw materials available to us. We have been working together sourcing new, rich quality sari silk waste fabrics for our yarns, and this batch beats all.
Beautiful handcut strips of sari silk fabric made into fabulous ribbon yarn. Handmade from waste silk destined for landfill.
Get your creative justices flowing with these unique sari silk ribbon yarns. They are suitable for use as a knitting ribbon and crochet ribbon. For weaving, rug hooking, wall hangings, hand knitting and fibre arts.
Our sari silk ribbon has been handmade by a group of women we support in rural India. The artisans hand tear strips of 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.
By purchasing these yarns you are supporting fair trade, happy working conditions and the continuation of ancient crafts in rural villages giving underprivileged families work within their own homes.
Inspirational ribbon produced by the most talented individual. See 'Our Yarn Journey' for more info on the craftspeople and women's co-ops who produce these yarns.
