This is vintage silk yarn is made by tearing, by hand, fabric into quarter inch strips then sewing them together. You can use this yarn for jewelry making, knitting, crochet, or what ever else you think the colors will look good in!
As always, remember that by getting this yarn (or any of our yarn or products for that matter!) in using it in your project,you are helping the women of India and Nepal become self-sufficient and provide basic needs of their family— like food, healthcare, shelter, and education— in ways they could not have otherwise done.
If you are looking to create true one of a kind pieces, this yarn is for you! Each 100g/117ft skein is made by hand from start to finish! Vintage silk saris are first torn by hand into quarter inch strips, then sewn together to make this wonderful recycled sari silk yarn.
