Turmeric dyed natural mulberry silk yarn. Handspun yarn made from waste. Ethical yarns. SOLD OUT
Handspun Indian mulberry waste silk yarn hand dyed in TURMERIC giving us a beautiful wild lemon colour for the Spring!
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 chunky silk yarns, their nature and textures are peerless. They are edgy, 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 yarn is suitable for knitting, crochet, weaving, making rugs, arts and crafts and more. Ethical, sustainable yarns handmade by talented artisans!
