Item details

Make something beautiful using this 100 percent silk yarn fashioned from new sari silk remnants.

Darn Good Yarn purchases this yarn from Nepal where Napalese women hand spin the beautiful fibers in their homes to make money for their families' health care needs and to send their children to school. This yarn is not made in a sweat shop, nor is there child labor.

This price is for one skein of yarn.

Size: 100 gram balls. Worsted weight. 90 yards per ball.

Knitting needles in size US 5 (3.75mm); 4.5 stitches per inch.
Crochet: US G-6 (4mm) or US H-8 (5mm) hook.

Dye Lot: None

Care: Dry clean, or hand wash or delicate cold cycle. To soften throw it in the dryer on a low setting.

This yarn is wonderful to work with. Be prepared for some thin areas, although the areas are still strong and not a problem.

Here is what a customer had to say about this yarn:

"Wow! if you are a fan of recycled sari yarn THIS IS THE ONE TO GET! I have bought all sorts of skeins of sari yarn over the years but Pen and Hook's beats them all. First, these saturated colour skeins (beautiful, beautiful colour) feature tightly wound threads in a slightly finer cord. The yarn fibers hold together very well, without unravelling or shedding. Secondly, the skeins (actually balls) are absolutely odorless. Believe it or not, finding odor neutral recycled sari yarn is a challenge. There is no mustiness, no chemical or industrial oil smells coming off of these. You can comfortably use them in items you will wear and have no fear of off gas. Finally, I should note that Lisa went out of her way to accommodate me in a most helpful, courteous manner. My order was perfect. Lisa deserves your business! Thanks!" Nanette
