Our sari silk yarn in vintage white is back!
Recycled from silk waste in India and spun by women's co-operatives in rural and very deprived areas. Waste silk from the sari mills in India make fabulous yarns. 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 they are unusual, made from waste and provides employment for all these women!
The colours of these silk yarns, their nature and textures are peerless. They are textured, quite chunky and magical. Save waste from landfill in India, they have enough piled high!
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 60 yards.
