So we had a yarn naming contest for this yarn! You can join us next time at My Facebook Page! winners get a free skein of yarn! So I picked the winner and it's a little different than normal! I took two and smooshed them together (and not in the Jersey Shore sense... that's just gross)! Congrats to Red Llyan and Elizabeth Schell. The winning name is a hybrid of Photon from Elizabeth's son and Red's Recycled Rainbow. Presenting: Recycled Photon Rainbow!
Once you have worked with this 100% handspun yarn made from recycled sari silk remnants (all new material) you will be hooked! If it is not the super yummy texture that this sport weight yarn has in spades, it will be the rainbow of colors and the "wonder what comes next" experience that will keep you working.
This yarn will keep you engaged even after you are done with your project! The reason? The sari silk yarn will get "broken in" over time. Gaining softness and a very sumptuous sheen to it with usage! So the more you use your finished sari silk yarn garment or accessory, the more beautiful it will become! How great is that?
Each hank is 100g and has 147 yards to it!
If you're into making i-cord jewelry this will be a great material for your arsenal!
Dry clean, or hand wash or delicate cold cycle. If you would like to soften it up more you can throw it in the dryer on a low setting.
There are no dye lots. But I do recommend that you buy all the yarn necessary for your project at once.
In buying this yarn you will not only satisfy your inner crafting goddess, but you also help out farming families in India.
