Sari silk yarn, hot pink, chunky silk yarn, recycled yarn, knitting yarn.
Not only are these sari silk yarn skeins recycled from silk waste in India, they are spun by women's co-operatives in rural and very deprived areas by hand using a drop spindle.
Waste silk from the sari mills in India make fabulous yarns and check out this blaze orange colour! Doesn't this colour just pop out at you! See 'our yarn journey' to see how these silk yarns are dyed!
These sari silk yarns are spun using a drop spindle in villages in Northern India. Spinning these yarns is the only source of income in these communities. By providing these spinning opportunities, we keep 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. 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 50 yards.
