Sari silk yarn is a handspun yarn made from leftover silk fibres from sari manufacturing in India. Not only are they recycled from silk waste, they are spun by women's co-operatives in rural and very deprived areas of India. Waste silk from the sari mills in India really do make fabulous silk yarns bursting with personality. They are spun using a drop spindle in villages around Northern India.
Spinning these yarns are their only source of income. We work directly with these artisans developing new colours and yarns form waste materials that would otherwise be destroyed! This is great 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. Save waste from landfill!
This is a super yarn for knitting, crochet, weaving, rug making, arts and crafts and more. Ethical, sustainable yarns made by talented artisans!
