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, awesome! 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.
I am totally enamored with this yarn. It's bright, beautiful, and so naturally textured with the variety of diameter and condition of the yarn. I think it smells wonderful, just like the converted warehouse that the yarn is sold from - musty and luscious. I'm looking forward to my new shawl in this yarn very much. Perfect for the summer!
Colors are beautiful, have bought this yarn before a few years ago. These skeins are are spun so tight yarn does kink often and needs to be straightened out every few minutes. Also, it goes from as thick as a hair to bigger. The very thin scares me a little as Im making infinity scarves. It would be best if it were somewhat more consistent. I know silk is very strong and in this case it needs to be. I need to rethink how I'll use the last skein. Im sure tho I'll order more but at the creator end it could be mentioned I use size 11-15 needles mostly as I like the fabric to show, the colors and the textures but extensive feet of the extrememly thin becomes a factor for strength and consistency of my project. Thiscker obviously shows the fabric off better. Everyone loves the uniqueness and give back factor. Me also! thankslv
I love it and the price is right.
I haven't used it yet but think it's beautiful!
