Item details

There are approx 5 metres of this turquoise yarn/twine that I made from the cotton hem of a previously loved saree. It takes a while for me to make, first I tear the fibre into thin strips, then join the strips together. Next I hand spin using a drop spindle then I wind this yarn into a long length and wash. Once washed, it is then thrashed to make the twist set. Following I then hang to dry with a weight. A rather lengthy, but thoroughly enjoyable process to produce beautiful yarn/twine!

There are many possibilities for its use, such as necklaces, bracelets, knitting or crochet, or it could be used for a variety of fibre art projects. This could also be used in gift wrapping as an alternative to ribbon or string.

All proceeds go towards Little Bird SOS' social aims, so as well as buying a unique item you are also supporting a good cause!
