Sari silk ribbon yarn. Egyptian blue.
Our Egyptian blue is back! Each skein unique as it has been hand dyed in the back yards of families we work with in Northern India.
Beautiful hand cut strips of sari silk fabric made into a silk ribbon yarn, which is approximately one inch wide. Handmade from waste silk destined for landfill. The depth of colour in each of these skeins are stunning.
Suitable as a knitting ribbon, crochet ribbon, weaving, rug hooking, macrame art, woven wall hangings and fibre arts.
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.
See 'Our Yarn Journey' for more info on the craftspeople and women's co-ops who produce these yarns.
Each 100g skein is approx 55 yards.
Handwash with light detergent. Lie flat to dry.
