Recycled Sari Spun and Ribbon Yarn

Recycled Sari Spun and Ribbon Yarns are varied and beautiful.  They can be used for weaving, knitting, crochet, and many other textile arts.  The ribbon yarns are created from the loose ends of saris that are collected from Indian industrial mills.  From there it is distributed amongst a women's cooperative in rural areas, torn into strips, dyed with beautiful colours and wound into skeins.  Each skein spun sari yarn is handspun by a fair-trade principled women's cooperative in India, from the byproducts of silk and sari manufacturing. Working with the cooperative allows women to work from home and care for their families whilst being paid a fair wage.
