Sari silk yarn, emerald green, lace weight, silk waste yarn. SOLD OUT
Stunning new batch of exotic and jewel toned emerald green sari silk yarn in a fine lace weight with a beautiful lustre. Not only are they recycled from silk waste in India, they are spun by women's co-operatives in rural and very deprived areas.
Waste silk fibres are taken from the sari mills in India and made into fabulous yarns.
These sari silk yarns are spun using a drop spindle in villages around Northern India. Spinning these yarns is the only source of income within these communities. By providing work, we keep their ancient traditions alive, we provide work in a socially responsible environment where no child labour is involved. We work directly with these women and families developing new colours and yarns from waste materials that would otherwise be destroyed! This is great news for us as yarn addicts because it adds a magical and inspirational spin to our creative endeavours.
The colours of these silk yarns, their nature and textures are peerless. They are soft, luxurious, handpsun and vibrant. They are also ethical, sustainable and recycled and we provide employment opportunities to alleviate poverty within the poorest of communities . We as a supplier and you as a customer are not only supporting these communities but we are saving waste from landfill!
This is a super yarn for knitting, crochet, weaving, making rugs, arts and crafts and more. Ethical, sustainable yarns made by talented artisans!
Each 100g skein is approx 300 yards.
