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... Read More
I’m using this for the weft in shawl weavings. It’s lovely and brilliantly colored
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.
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.
I am not sure if I like it or not. Thinking to try it as weft with my rigid heddle loom.
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.
