100% Recycled sari silk yarn: This multi color sari Yarn is by product of colorful saris that women wear in India. It is the loose end of saris collected from Industrial mills in India that is hand spun into yarn; because it is hand spun each hank is unique. The colors are rich and vibrant with a gorgeous depth and dramatic color combinations. An excellent yarn for all types of textile projects requiring rich color and texture including knitting, crochet, weaving, braids and embellishment within quilts, patchwork and embroidery. There is a slight luster to the appearance of the recycled sari silk yarn and you can still see the woven texture of some of the strips of fabric that have been spun together. The yarn has no elasticity so use it along with another yarn to add some stretch and memory.
