This fiber has been "pulled" into roving form for your convenience when using for your artistic endeavors. Perfect for blending, felting, and spinning, these are highly saturated rovings with gleams of multiple shades in each roving. To say that these fibers are mesmerizing is an understatement, sprinkle them liberally to bring life to any project!
I love this silk. Much softer than expected for recycled sari silk. I will buy this again! I'm using it for nuno felting and wet felting projects:) Thanks!
It took a while to receive the fiber, but overall excellent customer service, apparently there was a problem with a dye lot, and within minutes of putting my order in I received a phone call about the issue and it was resolved, the product is gorgeous and very soft
First , I definitely didn’t expect such a well prepared roving from a recycled sari cloth ! I very impressed with the smooth silk : no short pieces popping up or little bits . It’s truly a prep that is quite lovely and easy to spin from as is if you chose to . I may have order more it’s great stuff . I’ve added into my wool cardedbatts for pops of color and sheen , spread and blended through three times it was great for adding a nice feel to fine yarn for socks or added drape for a shawl . The colors are great , no mess and a great price ! I love the idea of adding silk for added wearability rather than nylon . It feels wonderful. easy to work with - just check for any snags on your nails before starting
I was hoping for a gold color. I can still blend this into gold wool roving for dimension.
Love being able to dye my own colors! It’s fun to use for added texture in my artyarns!
