Item details

Hand spun from the discarded silk left overs from sari production in India. This waste silk is collected and then woven into these vibrant yarns by women in local villages creating important income that these women wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity to generate.

A brilliant and popular addition to craft baskets for wrapping embellishments, knitting, crochet, felting, jewelry, cards, weaving - projects are only limited by your imagination.

Width and color variations will differ slightly due to the hand spun, hand dying and recycled qualities. Price is a hank of 3.5 oz (100gms) and approx 87 yards (80 meters) of 100% pure silk.

Approximate information for using:
Gauge Stitches per Inch 4-5
Needle Size 4.5-5.5mm
Hook size - G-H
Length is approximately 79 yards per 3.5oz (72m per 100gm).
Weight: heavy

Many, many other colors available - check out my other listings :)

Please note that this yarn is sold by weight not length. Length is an approximate only as this yarn is hand spun and will vary.

Yarn a little darker than in picture but still nice. Fast (expensive) shipping.

Darker than the photo and quite a few knots but it will be great for my project and I love the recycled element.
