Product Description

  • Nepal Hand-Spun Recycled Sari Silk Yarn 5 Ball 6-8 oz
  • 5 Large Hand-spun Balls of recycled silk sari yarn. Each ball is over 6 - 8 oz. More than 150 yards
  • No two balls of yarn are the same. Each item you knit will be one-of-a-kind. It is recommended that you alternate skeins in order to achieve a more even effect. Cold-water wash, lay flat to dry.
  • Suggested needle size is US 7 through 13 (Although this yarn can be knit on the smaller needles, larger needles will result in a softer finish with a nice drape.) The picture is a representation of the yarn you will receive but are not the actual skeins themselves.
Additional Information

It sheds, its twist is uneven, it doesn't have much "give"; every skein is different and there are no dyelots available. And those are just a few of its strong points. On the other hand, it is 100% silk, its colors are positively and amazingly vibrant, and every skein is different. This yarn is not for the faint of heart or the fussy fiber worker. Those who live in ordered rows and exact gauge will be frustrated working with this yarn. As with other silk yarns, you may choose to air this out prior to using or wearing it. In addition it should be wound in to balls very carefully to ensure that the delicate fibers stay woven in. Ah, but the artist, the adventurous knitter/weaver/crocheter - the experimenter, will be richly rewarded with this tempermental and ultimately satisfying yarn, making truly unique items that will garner touches and compliments. Your purchase of this yarn helps to support women's development groups in Nepal who produce unique fiber arts products in their spare time in their own homes. This work provides additional income to support their families and improve their lives. Women's cooperatives and cottage industries in Nepal import silk sari remnants from garment production in India that is then handspun in gleaming silk skeins. Many of these women are Tibetan refugees or have been abandoned or widowed with families to support. Using their traditional skills they are able to create vibrant, textured yarn in a endless array of color ways. Create something beautiful and help support these women's efforts.
