That’s right, we have more Recycled Silk Sari Ribbon Yarn to give away! This time we have a purple skein and a brown skein of this wonderfully textured yarn. It’s from Darn Good Yarn and is made from recycled vintage silk sari pieces. We all know that crocheting is an art form and this yarn just proves that textiles can be beautiful and up-cycled.
I especially love the purple skein. It has so many different shades of rich violet color along with a little red here and there. There are so many possibilities for crocheted projects with this type of yarn. Anything from little purses to shawls and scarves and this yarn will definitely make your finished piece a one-of-a-kind.
To make this unique recycled yarn, women in fair trade co-ops collect pieces of vintage recycled silk saris. They are hand torn to widths of about a quarter inch, and then sewn together end-to-end. The result is this stunning, exotic ribbon yarn. Each skein measures 100g long and contains about 180 feet of vintage sari ribbon. Which is quite a lot of yarn to have fun with and crochet something quite stunning.
This yarn is available in a wide variety of beautiful colors. Although it may appear delicate, it is really quite durable. Even just holding these skeins, I can tell that it’s thick and sturdy yarn. Definitely not typical yarn, but that’s what makes it so much fun!
