Our 100% Silk, Sari Ribbon Yarn is handmade from vintage silk saris. Whether you knit, crochet, weave, or make jewellery, this recycled yarn will be a beautiful foundation for any project. Each hand torn strip is an inch thick and sewn together to make a 100 gram skein. Please note that each skein is hand dyed, so we recommend purchasing all the yarn you need for your entire project at one time, so we can make sure that all the yarn you receive is similar in shade. Suitable for: Scarves, neck warmers, cowls, shawls, stoles, bags, pouches, cushions, embellishment, for crochet, knitting, felting ( with the help of plenty of wool to help secure it) embroidery, embellishing, jewellery, and adding to any project to give it a unique look.
When silk yarn is woven and made into saris, there are always remnants of silk fibres, these excess clippings are converted to beautiful, unique, soft ribbons !
Varying textures and widths of ribbon, no elasticity, lovely color variety
We work within a cottage industry environment that provides much needed employment to impoverished women in rural India. We work directly with the women in the cooperative, hence ensuring fair wages, a good work atmosphere, and premium quality yarn.
