Sari silk yarn, black, handspun yarn, ethical yarn.
Please note that these black skeins have been produced in homes where other yarns are also spun so you may find flecks of colours and threads in some skeins. Not only is sari silk yarn recycled from silk waste in India, they are spun by women's co-operatives in rural and very deprived areas by hand.
These sari silk yarns are spun using a drop spindle in villages around Northern India. Spinning these yarns is their only source of income in these communities. We work directly with these women and families developing new colours and yarns from waste materials that would otherwise be destroyed!
This is a super silk yarn for knitting, crochet, weaving, making rugs, arts and crafts and more. Ethical, sustainable yarns made by talented artisans!
Each 100g skein is approx 50 yards.
