Hand dyed denim blue sari silk ribbon.
Beautiful handcut strips of sari silk fabric made into fabulous ribbon yarn. Handmade from waste silk destined for landfill. The depth of colour in each of these skeins are stunning. Please note that due to the fact they have been dip dyed, some may be lighter than others. Each skein unique.
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. Each skein has been hand dyed.
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.
Magical, sparkling art yarns, magical people. See 'Our Yarn Journey' for more info on the craftspeople and women's co-ops who produce these yarns.
