Nepal Handspun Recycled Sari Silk Yarn 10 Skeins2 lbs
- This sale is for 10 skeins of recycled silk sariyarn.
- There is approximately2 lbs total weight of vibrantly colored 100% silk yarn (approximately 500 yards).
- Recycled silk yarn generally retails at $12 per skein (an approximate $120 retail value).
- No two skeins 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.
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.
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.
