This Sari RIBBON Yarn is very unique for many crafting projects including weaving, knitting & Crochet. It is made from cut strips of Sari Fabric and tied end to end. This is a great choice for wilder projects and embellishing but the possibilities are endless. No two skeins are alike and some even have velvet pieces or beaded sections!
100g/ 25yds varying thicknesses of ribbon and color made from Recycled saris.
Recycled silk ribbon 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, awesome!
We work with women's development groups in Nepal to produce this unique yarn and other hand knitted silk yarn products. Purchasing this yarn provides additional income to support and improve their family earnings.
Please leave order note if you would prefer a specific range of colors and we will try to meet your project needs.
... with a lovely natural feel and look. May use to make an evening purse.
I bought this yarn to make a bag on my loom. The people at Paradise Fibers matched the yarn so very close for me. I would buy it again.
