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.
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.
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.
Such a great yarn! The colors are bright and gorgeous!
Despite the thickness and tendency to curl within itself, I love the sari silk yarn. Great to blend with other fibers in vibrant saori weaving.
