Colorful, labor intensive fiber

Cheryl Oberle has a recipe for a vest using this fiber in one of her books and I bought the recycled silk yarn to try to make the vest. I got a couple different brands from different vendors at first. I liked the substantial, chunky brand Paradise sold best. The colors are wonderful. The fiber sheds like crazy and I had to read up about how to handle twisty fiber while knitting. I ended up buying a swift and ball winder to help with handling the fiber. I enjoyed working with this fiber a great deal because of the color and texture. The vest project ended up being a mess partly because of differences in fiber size affecting gauge and partly because I am not Cheryl Oberle. I will take it apart and use the fiber in other projects because it is a wonderful fiber.

Hmmm

This yarn is pretty (I got the bright pink) but it is very thick and stiff. I’m not sure what to make with it... it would make an interesting bag or maybe a macrame plant holder.

Dari silk yarn

I am not sure if I like it or not. Thinking to try it as weft with my rigid heddle loom.

Beautiful threads

I’m a fairly new weaver and this really is Paradise. All my orders arrive promptly and the fiber/yarn is high quality. This is my go to online fiber store.

Spectacular Colors

The colors are vibrant and the feel is sumptuous. So far I have displayed in a pottery bowl to admire until I am inspired for a new project. Thank you.

Product Details

Our 100% recycled Sari silk yarn is available in a variety of solid and multi-color arrangements. Due to the production process, no two skeins are exactly alike. Pictured are several examples of the color variation between each skein. If you would like a specific color range please leave an order note and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

This yarn is wonderful for knit/crochet purses, scarves, hats, and bags. Use this yarn in weaving projects to produce high-quality beautiful rugs and tapestries. This yarn has many craft uses and is a favorite among our community. Recycled silk yarn is the by-product of colorful saris that women wear in South Asia. It is the loose ends of saris collected from industrial mills in India that is hand spun into yarn in Nepal. The vibrant colors and unique texture of these silk fibers and silk yarn are inspirational to designers, knitters, and artisans.

The popularity of recycled silk yarn has extended beyond Nepal and India and has created an empowering cottage industry primarily benefiting women. This yarn is made of completely recycled Sari material from recycled clothing in Nepal. It is as green a fiber as you can get. We work with women's development groups in Nepal to produce this unique yarn and other hand knit silk yarn products. Purchasing this yarn provides additional income for the families in Nepal to support and improve their lives.


Approximately 100g/70yds per skein.

**Note: The white skeins vary in color
We recommend washing the dyed skeins before working with them as the colors may bleed.***
