The Sari has a long history in India. The first depiction of sari like costumes can be seen in sculptures dating back to 100 b.c The variety of colors, patterns, weaves and draping styles make the sari one of the world's most fascinating costumes. Today in India six and a half million people are engaged in the production of handloom sarees. We present to you RECYCLED FIBER from the Sari productions. This fiber has been "pulled" into roving form for convenience when using for your craft projects. Perfect for blending, felting, and spinning. These are highly saturated rovings with gleams of multi colors in each roving. To say that these soft fibers are mesmerizing is an understatement. An entire culture in one roving to bring life to any project!
This is adding a bright "lift" to the Myrtle solid color Merino that I am spinning. I'm anxious to get a blending board so that I can have even more fun!
The recycled sari silk is really fun. I purchased several colors including the mix. So far I have used the mix with a mixed color BFLeicester and like the tweedy look. Also used the gold in a "Wild card batt" of red, pink and orange. A little bit goes a long way,
I am using this in hand carding and it really enhances the finished yarn. Super Fun!!
I bought the midnight rainbow colorway and it is gorgeous! Mine is a bit darker than I was expecting from the picture but those pops of colors are stunning so I'm thrilled. I can't wait to start spinning it.
